Fachinformationsdienst für die Geowissenschaften der festen Erde (FID GEO)

The library participates in the DFG project "Fachinformationsdienst Geowissenschaften der festen Erde (FID GEO)" in partnership with the SUB Göttingen.

FID GEO is a project that implements advanced information and publication services for the geoscientific community in Germany. Its focus is on the geosciences of the solid earth. FID GEO is funded by “Specialised Information Services Programme” of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), which establishes a number of discipline-specific “Fachinformationsdienste (FID)” in Germany. FIDs supplement existing information infrastructures at universities and research institutions, providing additional services nationwide.

Project partners

  • Niedersächsische Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Göttingen (SUB Göttingen) 
  • GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences


SUB Göttingen focuses on digitization and electronic publication of so-called "grey literature" and digitization of other print products and maps not protected (anymore) by German copyright. The main task of GFZ is to set up a service for the publication of research data (data supplements to traditional journal publications). Both project partners are proactive in providing advice to the geoscientific community, institutions, organisations and publishers regarding electronic publication to foster open access to scientific products including text, research data, software etc.
