About

This blog is used by the vLib project team in the Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL) to announce news for the services offered and to share experiences and ideas with a wider community.

The Max Planck Digital Library provides following entry points to the information resources available to MPG researchers:

  • MPG Resource Navigator – a comprehensive MPG-specific entry point to numerous free and licensed information resources such as reference databases, library catalogs, ePrint servers and subject gateways.
  • vLib portal – offers a metasearch module which enables simultaneous searches in selected resources.
  • MPG/SFX server – an OpenURL link resolver providing context-sensitive services for known references, e.g. a link to the electronic full text, holding information or further retrieval options re-using available metadata.
