Netherlands Institute for Scientific Information Services

NIWI aims at providing scientific information on the influence of digital networks and on the practice of science in multiple fields. In the domain of research on the Dutch language and culture, the institute encourages the use and the availability of digital information, digitalisation projects, data archives and bibliographical databanks. NIWI is the library for the KNAW, and consists of a large collection biomedical journals and a historical collection. NIWI provides information about research and researchers in The Netherlands, in all scientific fields. Its current projects include one pilot effort in digital preservation. Titled Archiving Digital Academic Heritage, the project is exploring the feasibility of setting up digital archiving services for scientific or scholarly research material in the Dutch academic sector.

NOTE: This project ended in 2005.
