The Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL) is a central scientific service unit within the Max Planck Society (MPG) dedicated to the strategic planning, development and operation of the digital infrastructures necessary for providing the institutes with scientific information and for supporting web-based scholarly communication.
The MPDL represents the Max Planck Society’s goal of creating a modern, electronic infrastructure for supplying institutes with information, storing data, publishing research results and establishing web-based, scientific collaboration, while taking into account the interests of the institutes and their libraries. It is thus an instrument in safeguarding the competitiveness of the Max Planck Society in the world of international science.
The MPDL is supervised by the Steering Committee, a body chaired by Vice President Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schön and composed primarily of scientists from Max Planck Institutes.
Through the foundation of the MPDL, activities in the area of scientific information dissemination, previously allocated across central units of the Max Planck Society, have been consolidated under one management.
