a Prototype for a Distributed Digital Mathematics Archive Library
This is a joint project of Keith Dennis & Gerhard Michler was submitted
to the DFG (funded) and the NSF (not known yet). The proposal is part
of an American-German cooperation to develop the software necessary for
a distributed digital mathematics library. With the permission of the
American Mathematical Society and JSTOR, the project will have access
to a substantial collection of digital files of mathematics journals in
order to develop and test in a real-world situation. In addition to allowing
access to the files of AMS journals, JSTOR will be cooperating in the
experiments with the reference linking software. Finally, the partners
have arranged with the reviewing journals Mathematical Reviews and
Zentralblatt für Mathematik for the use of their databases
for identifying citations.
University Math Collection
The Cornell University Math Collection consists of 577 books that were
scanned from originals held by the Mathematics Library. All books were
disbound and all pages were scanned. The books can be viewed via the Web
and facsimile paper reproductions are available for sale.
Digital Library of Mathematical Monographs
This is a collaborative project of the University of Michigan Library,
Cornell University Library and the State and University Library Gottingen
was funded by the National Science Foundation and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.
This project will create a genuinely distributed repository of significant
historical monographs in mathematics.
Mathematics Library (NSF/DML)
CUL has received official approval from the NSF for a proposal to fund
planning for an international collection of digital information and published
knowledge in mathematics. CUL will act as Planning Coordinator for an
international group of stakeholders in the project. The DML will facilitate
cooperation and coordination among a number of currently uncorrelated
digitization projects in mathematics that have emerged at separate institutions.
Such a coordination of efforts will promote a systematic approach to digital
preservation of mathematics materials, and provide users with an integrated
means of accessing them. Ideally, the DML materials will be freely accessible
to all on the Internet.
(Electronic Mathematics Archive Network Initiative)
EMANI is a collaboration among the libraries at Cornell, Tsinghua, and
Goettingen Universities and the German publisher Springer. It will result
in the digitization and archiving of Springer mathematics materials.
CUL mirrors with live updates the European Mathematical Society's EMIS
(European Mathematical Information Service) site. The EMIS mirror provides
outside links to several mathematics databases and stores the content
of 62 math journals.
Sciences Digital Library (Math DL)
CUL is participating in meetings with the coordinators of the Mathematical
Sciences Digital Library, an online resource sponsored by the Mathematical
Association of America with funding by the National Science Foundation
(NSF). CUL will address issues surrounding the archiving of the MAA's
new interactive publication, the Journal of Online Mathematics (JOMA).
Cornell University Library in partnership with
SPARC, have launched Project Euclid, an initiative to advance effective
and affordable scholarly communication in theoretical and applied mathematics
MATH Mirror Site
Cornell University Library houses a mirror site of Zentralblatt MATH in
cooperation with the European Mathematical Information Service (EMIS).
The Cornell mirror established in 2000 is the one nine mirrors worldwide.
Zentralblatt MATH includes about 1.8 million entries dating back to 1931
and publishes about 60,000 new abstracts and reviews produced every year.
Zentralblatt MATH which is published by Springer-Verlag is edited by the
European Mathematical Society (EMS), Fachinformationszentrum (FIZ) Karlsruhe,
and the Heidelberger Akademie der Wissenschaften.
