ProQuest has entered into an expanded agreement with publisher Schattauer GmbH to add to the German-language resources discoverable through the Summon service. Knowledgespeak brought this news to us in their article, “Serials Solutions and Schattauer GmbH agreement expands German content coverage within Summon Discovery Service.”

Schattauer has 22 scholarly journals devoted to medical fields that will now be indexed. Included in the German-language content are millions of catalog items, journal articles, and a specialized repository.

It’s nice to see indexing of any language content, but an important factor of digital indexing and archiving is consistency, and what provides consistency? Standards. Of course we are all about standards. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
