Abstract

Since 2006 Heidelberg University Library has been encouraging the idea of Open Access in the field of art history. Today, as part of the Specialized Information Service for Art it offers art historians from all over the world, through the platform arthistoricum.net, three different services for e-publishing in Open Access: (1) ARTDok – a digital repository for single publications and review articles, (2) ARTJournals – a publication management platform for e-journals and (3) ART-Books – a platform for monographs and edited volumes. Apart from providing scholars with software to help them publish professional peer-reviewed open access articles, the library also supports art historians in the transition from print to e-publications by offering them the technical infrastructure as well as organisational support. The service at Heidelberg University Library has shifted towards engaging more closely with academics and setting into practice their individual needs, leaving them to focus on research and contents. These newly developed processes based on a collaborative effort of art librarians and scholars place an important emphasis on the accessibility and provision of art historical research data in Open Access.
