Data usage

The majority of osmikon's data is available as open data for subsequent use by interested parties. We also offer a number of different possibilities for users to integrate the contents of the research portal into their own online tools or services, or to use the data for other (scientific) purposes.

Supplementing your own research tools with our data

For over ten years, the tables of contents of new acquisitions by the Eastern Europe Collection of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek have been digitised and made available in pdf format as supplements to the catalogue. Since 2016, person and place indexes as well as bibliographies have also been scanned. You can integrate these items (20,000 as of May 2018) into your own catalogue via the Bavarian Library Network or your local library network.

Do you lack data on Eastern and Southeastern Europe for a humanities or social science portal? We can assist you with our data. Take a look at our regional and specialist profile and contact us if you are interested.

New acquisitions service: new books and more

You may select the topics and countries and receive a monthly email newsletter with the acquisitions relevant to you. Many libraries use this information as a basis for acquisition – for example, the ISBN numbers are included, so that you can easily order the titles from your retailer.
