The TIB AV-Portal is a web-based platform for quality-tested scientific videos from the realms of technology/engineering, architecture, chemistry, information technology, mathematics and physics. Amongst other things, the videos portray computer visualisations, learning material, simulations, experiments, interviews, and recordings of lectures and conferences. A key feature of the portal is the use of different automated video analyses. The added value: these video analyses enable pinpoint searches within the video content.
The Competence Centre for Non-Textual Materials at the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB) started developing the portal in cooperation with the Hasso Plattner Institute for Software Systems Engineering, in July 2011. The TIB AV-Portal went online in spring 2014.
The TIB AV-Portal can be used to search easily for scientific videos from the fields of science and technology, and to cite and publish such videos in a simple manner. In addition, numerous videos can be downloaded, licensed or ordered on DVD.
The TIB AV-Portal focuses mainly on scientific videos from the six core subjects of the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB):
