FID Asien - CrossAsia

Project object

The project is oriented towards the requirements of the top tier of academic research by building, reliably running and continuously improving the conditions of a subject-specific, up-to-date, and comprehensive search for materials from and about Asia, as part of the CrossAsia portal. Search options, such as bibliographic metadata search and full-text search, will be further developed in line with the current demands of the research community, and new techniques will be tested to support future research questions and methods. Since 2016, the project has marked milestones in the further development of the CrossAsia Portal.
