Bavarian State Library offers German and English content via Yewno research platform

Press Release: Yewno [March 22, 2018]

March 22, 2018 - Redwood City, CA -- Yewno, Inc., leading provider of Artificial Intelligence solutions, today announces that the Bavarian State Library will offer researchers the option of performing research in either English or German using the Yewno Discover platform.

Yewno's Discover platform harnesses hundreds of millions of semantic connections and conceptual links from millions of scholarly articles, books, and databases across all academic fields. This empowers researchers to navigate intuitively across concepts, relationships, and disciplines, learning from resources that might have otherwise been overlooked. This not only enhances understanding and creates more impactful work, but also saves time while ensuring comprehensive coverage.

The German-language content distributed via the Yewno Discover platform is originally written in German and acquired directly from publishers and high quality Open Access sources. It is not translated content. This is important, as it ensures the accuracy and integrity of the original content, and also adds original language perspective and linguistic nuance.

"The Bavarian State Library has long recognized the issue of cataloging and accessing increasingly fragmented, smaller text research data in the digital age. We have found that Yewno offers semantic discovery in a visually compelling and intuitive manner," says Dr. Berthold Gillitzer, responsible for the user services department at the Bavarian State Library. "The addition of German language documents meets our prerequisite to have the full breadth of our collections discoverable within Yewno's advanced research system. We are also delighted to be able to include some of our own collections which can now be discovered by researchers around the world through Yewno's platform. The connections that are revealed as a result of including this content in the Yewno ecosystem is really exciting".

"As leaders in the field of semantic discovery, Yewno is continually looking to add value and meet the needs of libraries and researchers globally," adds Ruth Pickering, Yewno Co-Founder and Chief of Business Development. "The addition of our multi-lingual interface is a unique element of the product which we are really excited about as it opens up new research possibilities."
