Specialised Information Service Comparative Literature (SIS Comparative Literature)

The SIS Comparative Literature (Fachinformationsdienst Allgemeine und Vergleichende Literaturwissenschaft, FID AVL) is a project set in motion beginning in 2016 at the Johann Christian Senckenberg University Library in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, with funding from the German Research Foundation. It is now in its second funding period (2019-2021). The FID AVL makes informational services available to scholars in the field of Comparative Literature and is being developed in close collaboration with the research community and with the support of a Advisory Board of Scholars. For more information about the SIS Comparative Literature, go to About us.

Our services are still in the setup phase. We invite you to visit our site regularly – we will constantly be adding new functions and services! You can stay up-to-date by joining our mailing list, or by visiting our avldigital BLOG and subscribing to our Twitter feed.
