On Wednesday, 27th May 2015, the librarians of the Max Planck Institute for Research on Collective Goods were awarded the prize "Zukunftsgestalter in Bibliotheken 2015" ("Shaping the Future in Libraries 2015") at the 104th Congress of German Librarians in Nuremberg.
JournalTouch is an innovative, interactive and intuitive tool that enables researchers to find what they are looking for by means of quicker and more target-oriented searches in digital journals, using information from the web.
The most important goal of the project was to incorporate JournalTouch into the researchers’ work routine at the institute. All activities are carried out without media disruption or manual application changes: browsing, filtering, finding and choosing articles, printing a pdf, sending or ordering, personal use of the chosen information, or the transfer of metadata to reference management systems.
JournalTouch creatively redesigns library services; these can be used by all libraries that wish to provide their target audiences with a tangible presentation of digital content. Further use of JournalTouch is encouraged!
