Aim of the project
The aim of the project is to clarify whether printed journal volumes can be provided only in electronic format.
Description of the project
The feasibility study should clarify whether journals at the ETH-Bibliothek must continue to be stored physically or whether the electronic versions – already available or due to be digitized – satisfy the requirements for use and long-term preservation.
The following aspects are incorporated into the study:
- evaluation of holdings (in printed and electronic form, backfiles, journals due to be digitized)
- cost analysis, possible opportunities for collaboration regarding the printed and digital archives
- long-term data security
