Now or Never: Innovative Tools and Services for Scientists

In 2017 TIB carried out a survey in order to obtain a more accurate and multi-faceted picture of their target groups and their information and publication behaviour. The focus of the survey was on the use of non-textual scientific materials such as audio-visual media and research data. In this article, we present the implications of the survey results for the TIB. The survey revealed a high potential for services for non-textual materials like scientific videos, research data and research software. We introduce services like the TIB AV-Portal, the Leibniz Data Manager and Software Carpentries Workshops as well as services for interlinking of PIDs. In addition we present our VIVO System, which is a research profile system based on open source software in which scholarly output of an institution - including non-textual information - can be aggregated and made visible for the community.
