Abstract

With the event of Social Media, well established principles of scholarly communication have changed dramatically. For centuries libraries served as single point of access to scientific literature. Social Media however brings up new publication forms, e. g. scientific wikis, new communication channels, e. g. micro-blogs, or community driven research and publication envirnoments, e. g. Mendeley or ResearchGate. Based upon our own experiences within ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics, we present how research and development in computer science will help scientific libraries to manage the necessary change within the next decade.
