German Education Server

The German Education Server (Eduserver) is a guide to educational information on the web and offers basic and high-quality information and internet resources to all interested parties fast up-to-date, comprehensively and free of charge. In its function as a meta-server, the Eduserver mainly refers to internet resources provided by the federal government (Bund) and the federal states (Länder) of Germany, the European Union, higher education institutions, schools, state institutes, non-university research institutes, science organisations, libraries, documentation centres or museums, structuring the information and presenting it in scholarly contexts. The Eduserver also supports the collaboration between the education servers of all federal states in Germany. It additionally offers platforms about Education worldwide and a guide to educational research in Germany.
