FIZ Chemie Berlin’s Rene Deplanque was a busy guy yesterday. In addition to his talk in the morning, he signed a cooperative deal with TIB Hannover in the afternoon. They will cooperate in the archiving and providing of multimedia elements. "Digital media have become the most important carriers for current scientific knowledge," he said. Uwe Rosemann, Director of TIB Hannover, added that the task for librarians has expanded well beyond the traditional archiving of printed materials into digital image, video, 3-D, audio and simulation data. FIZ Chemie will be responsible for developing concepts and standards for the central archiving and verification system, while TIB will collect the digital materials, register them by DOI code, verify them in catalogs and databases, and provide them via the TIB portal.
