A fascinating cross-lingual scientific search engine called Dandelon.com - a collaborative project between the university libraries of Germany, Austria, Switzerland and AGI – information management consultants, together with GBV – has reached a landmark 100,000 books scanned and prepared for searching. This is claimed to be the the largest European collection of searchable tables of contents of scientific books.
The search engine enables scientists, academics and researchers to discover relevant texts whatever language they are stored in – from one of the co-operating libraries. There is even a visual map view of the query terms!
So Google isn’t the only library cataloguing project!
