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 Search Options.
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 Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). Geo-Guide is part of the SSG-FI 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.
