The Internet as a Means of Information Resources' Integration: The Regional Aspect.
Elepov, Boris S.; Soboleva, Elena B.; Fedotova, Olga P.; Shabanov, Andrei V.
The presence of Siberian and Far Eastern libraries on the Internet has become the reality of today. Joining this community, they solve at least two main problems--those of rational use of World Wide Web resources and those of providing access to their own products. There is a system of fixing documentary streams disclosing regional problems. Each territorial library takes upon itself the compiling of local lore literature databases, including analytical surveys of publications about all aspects of social life in their territories. They are partly present at the sites of these libraries, and databases produced by different research institutions are available at their Web sites. All-Siberian information is cumulated in databases produced by the largest library of the region, the State Public Scientific-Technical Library of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. These databases comprise documentary information on regional aspects of nature resources, economy, culture, and history and are available on the Internet. (MES)
