the eth-bibliothek knowledge portal is online

28.06.2010 The Knowledge Portal combines a number of search platforms and smoothly incorporates the search tool into the website.

The ETH-Bibliothek has a new Internet site. The key feature is a search box which can now be used as the starting point for your searches. Search engine technology is used to read multiple information sources at the same time - a total of about 27 million documents.
This comprises the stock of the NEBIS library network, which includes the holdings of about 90 libraries, the institutional repository for the ETH Zurich ETH E-Collection, the Online Image Archival Database and the retro.seals.ch platform, giving access to full-text versions of more than 80 journals in digital format.
It also searches in the Multimedia Portal of ETH Zurich, which contains, among other things, lecture recordings and the ETH-Bibliothek website.
Furthermore, the Digital Article Database Service DADS provided by the Technical Information Center of Denmark is used to search the metadata for about 22 million electronic journal articles.

By using search engine-type retrievals based on Ex Libris Primo, the ETH-Bibliothek is responding to changing ways of working in the sciences and to the expectations that "digital natives" have of a modern search tool.

Various features will soon be introduced to make using the Knowledge Portal even easier. Over the next few years, other information services will be added to the Knowledge Portal, making it the main, all-inclusive search tool for ETH Zurich and the general public.
