The German Education Server - The Internet Guide

Deutscher Bildungsserver (German Education Server, or Eduserver) is the focal internet guide to educationally relevant information. It provides fundamental and high quality information on internet resources - thus offering quick, up-to-date, concise and free access to information. As a meta-server it primarily refers to resources on the German education system, which are mainly provided by the federal (Bund) and state (Länder) authorities, the European Union, higher education institutions, schools, state institutes, non-universiy research or service instituts, scientific societies, media providers and libraries. The German Education Server is jointly provided by the federal government (Bund) and the states (Länder)..

Subject areas

Apart from search options in several data bases, the information pool can be accessed via a structured entry, i.e. thematic catalogues.

The subject areas cover all levels of education, from earlychildhood education and care to primary and secondary school and vocational education and training. Moreover, they address higher education, and also continuing and adult education . These subjects are supplemented by general information such as descriptions of the German education system, education policy, statistics etc., and cross-section information, such as special education and social pedagogics, media and education, and education worldwide and intercultural education.
