History Guide at The State and University Library at Goettingen, Germany (SUB)
The History Guide at the SUB Goettingen is an Internet-based subject gateway to scholarly resources in history, focussing on Anglo-American history. The guide's database currently lists Dublin Core metadata for almost 1,400 web sites. It is freely accessible at this URL:
The guide's layout has been redesigned to match the newly created Virtual Library of Anglo-American Culture: History (VLIB-AAC) website of which it has become a part. The Virtual Library aims at bringing SUB's services as special subject area library for Anglo-American history together at one place. It is also developing solutions to integrate electronic media into its seamless library information service. The Virtual Library of Anglo-American Culture: History is available at this URL:
The homepage of the Virtual Library of Anglo-American Culture in general is available at this URL:
The Internet section of the VLIB-AAC: History includes e.g. mirrors of
the web sites of the Institute of Historical Research in London and the German Historical Institute in Washington, D.C. The mirroring of other servers is planned for the future. The VLIB-AAC hopes to not only offer improved access to the resources for German users, but preserve websites of important research institutes in the long term. We are also developing a search engine for e-journals. Currently our search engine indexes the full-text of more than 60 freely accessible history e-journals, thus linking the user directly to the article or review.
Since most historians still rely on printed books and articles rather than on Internet resources in their daily work, the VLib-AAC also offers direct access to SUB's substantial printed collections in Anglo-American history and its new acquisition lists. The Virtual Library links the quarterly new acquisition lists directly to SUB's document delivery service GAUSS. The GAUSS for-pay service includes electronic document delivery of journal articles to the user's e-mail address within 72 hours. It is also possible to order monographs, dissertations and microforms for a loan period of four weeks.
