  • The approach that DataCite is taking – using DOIs - has some important social benefits. Researchers, authors, publishers are comfortable, understand, and know how to use them. They put datasets on a level playing field with articles.
  • Started in 2004 with a DFG funded project lead by TIB and including three World Data Centres (STD-DOI Scientific Technical Data with DOIs)

    4. 4. Consequences for Libraries <ul><li>Scientific Information is more than a published article or a book </li></ul><ul><li>Libraries should open their cataolgues to this non-textual information </li></ul><ul><li>The catalogue of the future is NOT ONLY a window to the library‘s holding, but </li></ul><ul><li>A portal in a net of trusted providers of scientific content </li></ul>
