Within the same
project, the University of Lecce coordinates the development and the revision
on-line of the National Catalogue of Mathematics and related sciences journals.
The catalogue is accessible using the WEB, at the address http://siba2.unile.it, by a user friendly interface WaisIsisWeb (http://siba2.unile.it/archives/bibsearch.html). This interface allows the user to find in an extremely simple way the desired information and to ask automatically, by e-mail (clicking on the interested library and on the relative address of e-mail), for the copies of journal articles for exclusively scientific purposes, or directly to access to the electronic journals (clicking on the proper link, if available).
Both a further enlargement and a revision of the Catalogue and the development of the related services are planned.
The hypertextual links between the Catalogue and other on-line informative resources, such as bibliographic and full-text databases, electronic journals and so on, will be further developed.
Some initiatives and contacts are developing with Universities and Research Organizations, with some producers and distributors of bibliographic and full-text databases and with documentation services providers.
We are envisaging, in fact, the formulation of an interlibrarian plan to rationalize the journals purchases and to share bibliographic and full-text databases using Internet.
In agreement with SilverPlatter, we have activated the connection of the Catalogue to the databases which can be consulted through ERL, in particular Current Contents and MathSci.
In agreement with the editor of Zentralblatt fur Mathematik, scientific coordinator of the EMIS, the European Mathematical Informative Service, we have also activated the connection of the Catalogue to the MATH Database.
The dynamic links allows to extend automatically the search performed on Math Database or on ERL databases (Current Contents and MathSci) to the Catalogue.
Besides, there are pending negotiations with the two editors for a larger and easy access to the respective databases from the libraries which join the SINM.
We are very interested to extend the contacts and the cooperation with the American Mathematical Society, with other Mathematical Associations, with Universities and Research Organizations, with some producers and distributors of bibliographic and full-text databases and with documentation services providers.
