Committed to the Free Flow of Scientific Data, Information and Knowledge
Passion for Knowledge
Why? The progress of science and technology also transforms scientific work environments itself. Novel applications, tools and practices accelerate the pace of achieving research findings. Concurrently, scientific data and information cycles are turning increasingly complex. Related to these new circumstances and needs, the Lab was dedicated to creating relevant information infrastructure and suitable services.
How? ETH Library promoted ideas and projects that empower user autonomy, foster open exchange and help to release students, researcher and educators from routine workflows and repetition. On the other hand, it explored new trends in science communication and citizen science as well as data-driven applications in the field of cultural heritage protection.
It’s All in the Roots – The ETH Library Lab was a joint initiative of ETH Library and the Library of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). It started its operations in the middle of 2018.
