THE REFERENCE CENTER


THE REFERENCE CENTER

The Reference Center ensures close links between the Library and the world by enabling the exchange of scientific, professional and business information, and by supplying the Library with primary publications.

The Center was founded in 1985 and it possesses a complete database of Science Citation Indexes with records from about 6,000 best known natural, applied and social science journals from 1945 to today (The Science Citation Index, The Social Sciences Citation Index and The Arts and Humanities Citation Index). Since 1980, this database is on compact discs, and from 1992 it contains not only the bibliographic descriptions, but the abstracts as well. Since 2000, this data base on Internet contains enlarged list of over 8,000 the best world periodicals.

A more important source of information is the international host DIALOG to which the Matica Srpska Library has an access and where it has a deposit. It provides great opportunities for online retrieval of 400 of the most important databases in the world. Practically, it means that there is no topic on which one could not find the latest bibliographic information, mostly in the form of abstracts.

In addition to this information, more and more bibliographic and reference publications are arriving on compact discs every day.

The Matica Srpska Library is one of the co-founders of Serbian Libraries Consortium for United Database Acquisition, that is electronic servicies, as well as the acquisition of foreign journals in paper form (KOBSON).

To get to the primary text (book or a journal article), the interlibrary loan system is used. The requested material is exchanged by the domestic libraries based on a reciprocal principle and free of charge. Our most reliable partner abroad is a specialized institution of the British Library (British Library Document Supply Centre) which acquires 30,000 titles from scientific journals in the world where one can find almost everything he needs.

AGRIS Center

Since 1982, the Matica Srpska Library takes part in the creation of an international database for agricultural sciences (AGRIS). The more significant articles written in this field and published in our country are processed and included in the base to which 169 countries in the world and 37 international centers have access.

The Reference Center also processes, stores and offers to the users semi-publications (scientific and research projects in Vojvodina from 1973 to 1991, all doctoral dissertations defended at the University of Novi Sad, domestic patent documents and standards, documentation of UNESCO and FAO).
