Heidelberg University Library cooperates with scholars to hosts and maintain sustainable, database-supported bibliographies with relevant literature on various South Asian scientific topics in the context of FID4SA.
The data is presented with an adaptable layout within the discovery system VuFind, which was developed as open-source software. The bibliographical datasets that have been determined by scholars are entered in the union catalog K10Plus using authority data from the Integrated Authority File (Gemeinsame Normdatei, GND) and indexed by subject. The re-use of existing title records, the homogeneous and sustainable data management together with the inventory records of the FID and the existence of interfaces to national and international systems are advantageous. With its modern search engine technology, VuFind provides a wide range of research options (i.e. faceting, Web2.0 features). An authentication option was also implemented to enable personal search lists, favorites or tagging.
The Odisha Bibliography provides a targeted, topic-focused listing of research literature on the history, culture, religion and politics of the Indian state of Odisha/Orissa.
The Naval Kishore Press Bibliography serves as a primary reference tool for the publisher's printed works. The aim of the bibliography is to document the stocks distributed to libraries worldwide in a central database.
