TIB’s Terminology Service

With its new Terminology Service, TIB – Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology and University Library provides a single point of access to terminology from domains such as architecture, chemistry, computer science, mathematics and physics. You can browse ontologies through the website or use its API to retrieve terminological information and use it in your technical services.


Community Terminology Services

TIB maintains additional Terminology Services specific to several research communities as extensions to this service.
and Terminology Services are particular examples of these extensions. It is planned to host more community specific Terminology Services as extensions of the central service.
