Providing access to information resources relevant to physicists, the
Subject Guide of the Physics Vitual Library ViFaPhys contains collections of
information and information resources. The contents of the Subject Guide are
displayed in a clearly organised, well-structured way, sorted by subject and
by resource type.
High quality of provided information is ensured by
- intellectual selection of resources on the basis of stated criteria,
- evaluation and characterisation of resources by selected experts,
- automated and intellectual checks of the included sources and their descriptions.
Thus, integration of experts is crucial for getting the Subject Guide's
quality: Especially scientists are qualified to judge the relevance of a
resource and to evaluate its content.
How this integration of distributed expertise is organised by the Special
Interest Group 'Information' of the German Physical Society DPG will be
shown in this presentation.
The Physics Virtual Library ViFaPhys is a project funded by the Deutsche
Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation) DFG and coordinated by
the TIB, the German National Library of Science and Technology.
