Peereboom, Marianne (2002) The Renardus Broker Service: an academic subject gateway service for Europe. In: Internet databases and literature services. 14th Elisad Annual Meeting, 10-12 October 2002, University of Bremen, Germany.

The Renardus Broker Service (www.renardus.org) was developed in 2000-2002 under the EU's User-friendly Information Society programme by partners from national libraries, university research and technology centres and subject gateways Europe-wide. The service provides cross-search and cross-browse access to existing scientific and cultural resource collections available on the Internet. This paper describes Renardus' key concepts and outlines the potential benefits for both participating subject gateway services and end-users. Also organisational arrangements and strategies will be discussed and visions on future collaboration with other services.
