Projects at the ZB MED
The primary goal of our project work is to continuously improve our supply of full texts while developing application-oriented services for science and research. What are the current trends in science and research? What do your users need and expect from a specialist information institution? How can you separate relevant trends from dead-end trends? The ZB MED strives to answer these questions by carrying out innovative market research and cutting-edge projects.
"Projects should generate products – or components of a product." That is the aim of all the projects carried out at the ZB MED. Sustainable and sensible use of financial and staff resources helps boost Germany's status as a major player in the world of science and research.
