Organized national and international networking between libraries allows us to provide your requested literature in a timely manner – either through purchase or interlibrary loan.
Data maintenance processes of our central publication management enable us to ensure that your bibliographic data undergo comprehensive quality testing, standardisation and validation. Your individual publication lists – as well as department and project lists are made available through enrichment of bibliographic data with structural data of the UFZ.
