    Abstract

    The project Virtuelle Fachbibliothek Physik (ViFaPhys) aims at establishing cooperations between physics departments, specialized information centres, publishers, libraries and other information providers to run the physics virtual library ViFaPhys as an integrated service providing information relevant to the field of physics.

    Cooperating partners are the Arbeitskreis Information der Deutschen Physikalischen Gesellschaft representing the scientists, the Fachinformationszentrum Karlsruhe specialized in in-depth content analysis and indexing of physics documents and the Institute for Science Networking Oldenburg developing and providing internet-services for physicists.
    The setup of the Virtuelle Fachbibliothek Physik is coordinated by the UB/TIB Hannover, the German central subject library for physics, that is experienced in running subject-based virtual libraries such as the Virtuelle Fachbibliothek Technik (ViFaTec).

    An essential element of ViFaPhys will be the subject guide Fachinformationsführer Physik, a commented and structured compilation of information resources for physicists. Participation of German physics departments in evaluating and describing relevant resources ensures an up-to-date compilation of high quality resources.
