Science and technology are expanding their influence on all aspects of life. This also reflects in 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.
Within this context, ETH Library Lab contributes to building and redesigning information architecture and services in a way that brings scientific data and information resources to broader and more efficient use. On one hand it promotes 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 explores new approaches towards serving scientific communities, companies in research & development and people interested in technology and science.
