Prof. Ulrich Jordis is a veteran of computer-based literature searching and has been instrumental in setting up various consortia to get licences for chemistry databases and digital libraries for Austrian Universities. Thus the TU Vienna is in the forefront of Universities having access to these research tools. (link to article here). Currently he and his research group are actively participating in the development of database systems like MDL/Symyx Notebook and Elsevier Beilstein Crossfire Commander.
