The History Guide provides access to scholarly relevant websites in history. All resources are described and evaluated with a set of Dublin Core metadata.
The History Guide, originally developed and located at Goettingen State and University Library since 1995 within a project funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation) and publicly accessible since 1997 started a cooperation with the InformationsWeiser Geschichte of the Bavarian State Library in 2001. This cooperation has been enlarged within the project Clio-Online and is meanwhile transformed in in a so-called netzwerk internetressourcen geschichte (Network Subject Gateways History) (nig).
The network internetressourcen geschichte is an alliance of institutions (research libraries, subject bibliographies, research institutions) which are sharing the mission to make scholarly relevant Internet resources publicly accessible in the field of history. The Network is open for the cooperation with further institutions and individual scholars as far as the mission and premises of the Network are supported in the same way. The principal purpose of the Network is the creation of metadata records based on internationally accepted standards and the provision of free access to these records for the scholarly community.
The actual members of the Network Subject Gateway History are:
- Goettingen State and University Library (SUB)
- Bavarian State Library, Munich (BSB)
- Clio-Online (Clio)
- Bibliothek für bildungsgeschichtliche Forschung, Berlin
- State Library of Berlin (Prussian Heritage Foundation)
- Virtual Library of Northern European and Baltic Regional Studies
- Virtual Library of Eastern Europe
- Zentrum für Zeithistorische Forschung, Potsdam
