The Virtual Catalogue The Virtual Catalogue integrates multiple libraries with important holdings of biological literature for parallel searches. In the pilot phase, libraries in Berlin, Frankfurt, Gatersleben (Germany) and Vienna (Austria) will participate (project partners).
The Internet Guide collects quality-checked links to relevant biological internet resources. Access is provided via search tools, as well as via browsing through subjects, resource types or geographical coverage.
In cooperation with the Electronic Journal Library (EZB) vifabio provides comfortable online access to E-Journals - a form of publication with ever-growing importance, particularly in biology. Abstracts or full texts are accessible depending on the location of the user.
Databases for biologists were subjected to cataloguing and subject indexing. National Licences in Germany permit the nationwide usage of bibliographic databases free of charge, for example, Biological Abstracts 1969-2004. Nationwide pay-per-use access provides access to the latest updates of Biological Abstracts and Zoological Records.
