Specialised Information Services: Background information on the update to the programme documents in June 2014
The programme guidelines, the funding guidelines and guidelines for the review process were last updated in June 2014. The changes include both formal additions and alterations to the content to render it more precise. The most important change is in Section 2.1 of the Guidelines (form 12.102) in which the distribution of responsibilities and the differentiation in the Specialised Information Services is described. Starting with the outcome of a roundtable discussion attended by researchers and librarians in March 2014 in Bonn, the Committee on Scientific Library Services and Information Systems decided in April 2014 that the guidelines should allow explicitly both subject-matter and also regional arrangements in the Specialised Information Services.
