Tech­ni­sche Infor­ma­ti­ons­bi­blio­thek (TIB) - Pro­gram Area B, User and Inform­a­tion Ser­vices

TIB, being part of the Leib­niz Rese­arch Asso­ci­ation, is with around 550 employ­ees one of the lar­gest tech­nical inform­a­tion cen­tres in Ger­many, hav­ing three main func­tions:
1. Act­ing in the capa­city of the Leib­niz Inform­a­tion Centre for Sci­ence and Tech­no­logy, our for­ward-look­ing ser­vices secure the infra­struc­tural require­ments for pro­vid­ing rese­arch­ers in sci­ence and indus­try with high-qual­ity inform­a­tion and lit­er­at­ure.
2. Car­ry­ing out cut­ting edge rese­arch to fur­ther expand TIB’s role as a Ger­man inform­a­tion centre for the digit­isa­tion of sci­ence and tech­no­logy
3. Offer lib­rary ser­vices for the Leib­niz Uni­ver­sity Han­nover.

As the Ger­man Natio­nal Lib­rary of Sci­ence and Tech­no­logy our future-ori­ented ser­vices ensure the infra­struc­tural require­ments for a high-qual­ity sup­ply of inform­a­tion and lit­er­at­ure for rese­arch in sci­ence and indus­try. Our ser­vices as a uni­ver­sity lib­rary secure the local sup­ply for the Leib­niz Uni­ver­sity Han­nover.

Pro­ject coordin­ator open access con­sor­tia (m/f/d)

Work­ing field:

The pro­ject Kon­sor­tiale Open-Access-Lösun­gen auf­bauen (KOALA) (Build­ing con­sor­tial open access solu­tions), fun­ded by the Fed­eral Min­istry of Edu­ca­tion and Research (BMBF), is car­ried out by TIB in cooper­a­tion with the Uni­versity of Kon­stanz. The pro­ject estab­lishes con­sor­tial, col­lab­or­at­ive solu­tions that con­trib­ute to the replace­ment of fee-based open access pub­lish­ing (APC) with sci­ence-friendly altern­at­ives. It thus aims to address one of the biggest obstacles cur­rently stand­ing in the way of the cross-dis­cip­lin­ary accept­ance and wide­spread dis­sem­in­a­tion of open access. TIB coordin­ates the pro­ject and is respons­ible for tasks in the open access con­sor­tia sub-pro­ject.
