In 2018 a study for a new user interface for GOKb was funded by the Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (Federal Ministry of Education and Research). Results were published in April 2019 and will be implemented within the next year.
Independently of this development, GOKb began a data ingest pilot phase incorporating 19 German libraries and consortia. The pilot participants will ingest KBART packages into GOKb and maintain them there. They will share their experiences and discuss with the editorial staff at regular conference calls. The pilot phase is open for all institutions. Please request a GOKb account https://gokbt.gbv.de/gokb/register, and send an email to email@example.com for further information.
