Institute of Information Theories and Applications FOI ITHEA
With the rapidly growing activities in electronic publishing ideas came up to install global repositories
which deal with three mainstreams in this enterprise: storing the electronic material currently available, pursuing
projects to solve the archiving problem for this material with the ambition to preserve the content in readable form
for future generations, and to capture the printed literature in digital versions providing good access and search
facilities for the readers. Long-term availability of published research articles in mathematics and easy access to
them is a strong need for researchers working with mathematics. Hence in this domain some pioneering projects
have been established addressing the above mentioned problems.
