FID licences

FID Linguistik provides access to electronic media that are subject to licence fees. With the financial support of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft and the technical assistance of the Kompetenzzentrum für Lizenzierung, supra-regional licences for selected discipline-specific resources such as databases or journals are acquired. Generally, the FID licences are a service for researchers affiliated with German academic institutions, i.e. universities or university-independent research centres. The licensing models vary depending on the product.
