Senckenberg Digital Library


The Electronic Journals Library – EZB

The Electronic Journals Library (EZB) is a cooperative service of over 650 libraries and institutions for the effective use of scientific online journals. The EZB lists over 100,000 titles, of which over 65,000 are freely accessible. As a member of EZB Senckenberg is able to offer its staff – provided they are in the Senckenberg network – quick, structured and coherent access to the full texts of freely accessible titles and those licensed by Senckenberg (approx. 15,000 titles via currently 47 national licences, and approx. 6.000 titels via further licences). Articles from these journals can be read, downloaded or printed online. For the other journals, tables of contents and abstracts can almost always be viewed. Articles from these journals can usually be obtained via interlibrary loan.

Specialised information service for biodiverity research – BIOfid

The specialised information service for biodiversity research (BIOfid) makes current and historical literature on biodiversity available nationwide (until further notice via ViFaBio), enables free access to the JSTOR database “Global Plants” with more than 2, 5 million digitized herbarium specimens for herbaria and botanical gardens in Germany. BIOfid is a cooperation between the J. C. Senckenberg Frankfurt/M. University library, the text technology lab of the Goethe University Frankfurt/M. and the Senckenberg – Leibniz Institution for Biodiversity and Earth System Research (SBIK-F Data and Modelling Centre and Senckenberg Exchange of Publications) and is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
