Schlussbericht zum Teilprojekt 4: "Integration der Elektronischen Zeitschriftenbibliothek (EZB)" des Gesamtvorhabens: Realisierung einer fachübergreifenden Infrastruktur für elektronische Informationsdienstleistungen durch die Informationsverbünde; Teil I - Kurze Darstellung und Teil II - Eingehende Darstellung
The heterogeneous and often hardly linked range of services in the field of the electronic specialized information makes a fast, comfortable and cost-saving access to academic and scientific information quite difficult. A basic target of the this project was a considerably easier access to electronic full text articles published in academic or scientific journals by creating a mutual connection between the Electronic Journals Library (EZB) and the vascoda members. We have created an EZB linking
... ated an EZB linking service offering article linking directly to full text articles published in scholarly e-journals. The linking service takes into consideration the licence information indicated in the EZB. Therefore, the licence data format of the EZB has been enlarged. Furthermore, a tool for the record and administration of national licences has been developed. In order to offer to EZB-users individual access to electronic articles, the EZB has been linked to pay-per-view supply services. A further aim was the development of a right management system for an individual authentication, authorisation and rights administration, which has been implemented as prototype in vascoda. After the development of the data model for the right management system, it has been implemented as pilot project in infoconnex, the information service for social sciences, and its operational capability has successfully been tested. The EZB linking service is currently used by various vascoda member services as well as by other information services; it can be implemented into other services. Also the software for the right management system developed within the project is available for reuse.
