Geo-Guide is a subject gateway to online information sources on Earth Sciences
(including Thematic Maps and Geography) and Mining.
The main goal is to index and catalog "high quality" internet resources in a
searchable database. We are looking for online resources in the internet and
selecting those which are of interest in the respective areas for
undergraduates through faculty. Each resource is described with a set of
metadata based on the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set in order to make records
browsable in the
Subject Catalog or the
Source Type Catalog as well as searchable with local
New resources are continuously added to the database, already cataloged ones
double-checked and updated. With that we are able to offer an up-to-date survey of relevant
information sources in Earth Sciences and Mining.
Geo-Guide was developed at the Göttingen State- and University Library (SUB, Germany), a participating library under the system of
literature supply supported by the
(DFG). Geo-Guide is part of the
project funded by the DFG in 1996-2000. It was conceived as a special service
of the SUB for the special subject collections Geography, Geology, Geophysics
and Thematic Maps. Since 1999 the Geo-Guide has been continued in project
cooperation with the University Library "Georgius Agricola" of the Freiberg
University of Mining and Technology (UBF, Germany), which is participating
library under the system of literature supply since 1998.
