One focus of the FID Math is meeting the demands of mathematical research by need-based licensing as well as transregional provision of special literature and relevant offers of information.
The Competence Centre for Licensing (KfL) negotiates, licenses and provides charged electronic resources transregionally on behalf of the FID. Financial resources are provided by the funding of the DFG and the SUB Göttingen.
All mathematical institutes of German universities are users of the FDI-licenses. They are provided with an access for the whole campus. Thus, access via computers of the universities or via VPN-client at home is possible at any time.
