we would briefly and clearly explain the TIB's diverse range of topics?

With "WHAT, IF ...?" (in German: WAS, WENN ...), TIB - Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology and University Library 2021 is launching a new format that does just that - it highlights TIB's wide range of topics.

On the website waswenn.tib.eu, there are short introductions to initially ten TIB topics, which will be constantly expanded: from improved knowledge exchange through knowledge graphs, the importance of Big Data in medicine and data treasures in research, to the question of how digital data can be made accessible for the next thousand years.

This week, everything is about the topic of Open Access. This is the aim of making scientific publications and materials freely available to all users.

Follow us on Twitter and Instagram to find out more about the topic and TIB's role in this context. We will be presenting other interesting topics on our social media channels in the coming weeks and months.
