474 views

Published on

Digital audiovisual content has become an important communication channel in Science. The TIB|AV-Portal for audiovisual scientific-technical information meets the requirements to preserve such content and to provide innovative services for search and retrieval. Quality checked audiovisual content from Open Source Geoinformatics communities is constantly being acquired for the portal as a part of TIB's mission to preserve relevant content in applied computer sciences for science, industry, and the general public.
