Text topic: E-Libraries
Text author: Бранислава Грбић
“Komunikacija”, a regional database of the electronic editions of journals and other publications and works from the fields of science, culture and arts in Serbia and the countries of the region, was founded in 2000. Its website, hosts 45 relevant journal titles, with over 350 volumes and over 10,000 articles and features. “Komunikacija” is a public good and access is free and unrestricted for all Internet users worldwide. Serbia’s domestic scholarly and cultural production is still not sufficiently present on-line, and a particular gap exists in the presentation of a larger number of journal titles at a single web address. Even so, some duplication has already occurred. Therefore, there is a clear need for an agreement on a strategy of development, involving all participants in the system of creating open-access repositories of Serbia’s scholarly and cultural goods.
