Springer Partners With BSZ

Jan 13, 2006

Springer, a scientific publishing company, has set up a partnership with the library service Bibliotheksservice-Zentrum Baden-Württemberg (BSZ). The BSZ runs the Südwestdeutscher Bibliotheksverbund (SWB), a library association catalogue database with 12 million titles from more than 1,000 libraries in South-West Germany. The aim of the partnership is to add elements such as sample chapters, tables of content, prefaces, and book covers to the Springer book content included in the SWB. Springer delivers these data electronically every month to be posted on the BSZ server.
