To Clio-online


Clio-online  started as a joint venture launched by institutions and projects that already looked back on many years of exxperience in dealing with electronic media in science. From 2002 until 2007, the German Research Foundation (DFG) funded the endeavour of setting up a scholarly information system for the history of science. In November 2007, the co-operation  merged into a trust, “Clio-online – Historisches Fachinformationssystem e.V.“.
