Earlier this week FIZ Karlsruhe’s CEO & Presdient Sabine Brünger-Weilandt reflected on the 30-year history of the German Technical Information Center (Fachinformationszentrum) she now directs.
She and Dr. Leni Helmes, Vice President for Development & Applied Research at FIZ-K, also described for me their strategic relationships with CAS/STN, ACS, and the Max Planck Institute. It should come as no surprise at this conference, but even organizations like FIZ-K, who focus on the scientific and technical research community, are evaluating Web 2.0 applications for incorporation into their classic services.
In the future, said Ms. Brünger-Weilandt, "we will be a service provider not just of scientific information but will support scientists in their research."
