|European Libraries and
in Mathematical Sciences
Library users and librarians from mathematics in research, education, and industry will actively participate. EULER is an initiative of the European Mathematical Society, and especially focuses on real user needs.
Standard, widely used and non-proprietary technologies such as HTTP, SR/Z39.50, and Dublin Core will be used. Common resource descriptions of document-like objects will enable interoperability of heterogeneous resources.
EULER will develop the prototype of new electronic information services. Most relevant information of one subject area are integrated (one-stop-shopping). EULER results will be portable to other subject domains.
Users will be enabled to make effective use of the mathematical library-related
information resources offered with a single user interface. Time-consuming
tasks associated with the use of non-integrated services will be eliminated.
The user will be enabled to search for and localise relevant documents.
In many cases he will be able to retrieve the full text electronically.
