Welcome to TIB Labs. Here you will find experimental and innovative services, beta versions and prototypes that are not (yet) in regular operation at the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB). We would like to give you an insight into our current research and development work and invite you to explore new technologies and services together with us.
ConDIDi is an abbreviation for “Conference Digital Identifier Integration”. ConDIDi aims to give digital conference credentials to the attendees and contributers of conferences that are securely and anonymously stored using Blockchain technology.
DeTrusty is a new federated query engine that offers explainability of the trustworthiness of the query result.

|Open Research Knowledge Graph (ORKG)|
Digital Libraries for Semantic Scientific Knowledge
OpenResearch is a semantic wiki to make information about scientific events, research groups, tools, journals etc. more accessible.
|ROSI - Registry and prototype|
Registry of open data sources for scientometric information
|Scientific Software Explorer (SciSoftX)|
The Scientific Software Explorer (SciSoftX) is a tool for comfortable, simultaneous exploration of scientific software and the respective describing article.
Services offered by the Scientific Data Management Group (SDM)
Web-based tool to publish, search, and browse SKOS vocabularies and thesauri. In addition to the indexing, browsing and graphical representation of structure and hierarchy of the vocabularies, Skosmos also offers a rest API and a SPARQL interface.

TIB's arXiv Portal is an alternative search portal for the arXiv Pre-print Server and provides enhanced search and ranking facilities and allows the exploration of arXiv papers by a novel user interface.
Kibana based analytics plattform for VIVO data.
For the research on video analysis, a new dataset creation and analysis service are in development. This video annotator service will help to create the dataset from N number of users. This dataset along with ground truth labels are necessary to proceed with the experiments.
|ConfIDent - A Service for Open Research Information on Conferences|
Registry of longterm available information on scholarly events
|Linked Data Fragments Server|
The Linked Data Fragments Server enables online queries on the metadata stock of the TIB AV portal.
|Lost in Antarctica|
The purpose of the project IBlendIko was to make transfer and aquisition of information literacy more attractive by developing a reusable, gamified blended learning course. The result of the project is the prototype of the game Lost in Antarctica.
