Towards an Internet Based Information Portal for Berlin and Brandenburg

Please always quote using this URN: urn:nbn:de:0297-zib-6949
  • The Cooperative Library Network Berlin-Brandenburg (KOBV) has set the development of a genuine library information portal for the two German Lander (federal states) Berlin and Brandenburg as its main task for the next years. This joined effort is driven by the vision of an user friendly Internet information portal which is accessible anytime, from anywhere in the world. The idea of a regional information portal can be understood as the logically consistent development of the basic ideas of the KOBV. Starting in 1997, the consortia has set the implementation of a virtual OPAC instead of a physical union catalogue as its goal. The result was the KOBV-Search Engine which already has some qualities of a portal itself. The paper begins with initial remarks about the German library world, which do form the background for the project and its initiator - the KOBV consortia. After this preliminary part, different types of portals are introduced. The basic features of the KOBV-Search Engine as one of the cornerstones of the future portal are discussed in the following. The information portal will be much richer in content and services for the end-user. Two aspects are focused on in more detail: the presentation of resources, which becomes a compelling requirement because of the broader range of content and the personalization of services, as one important feature to suit user's individual needs.
