Es ist 'das' Fachportal zur Germanistik. Es bietet neben dem Zugang zur Bibliographie der deutschen Sprach- und Literaturwissenschaft einen Metakatalog, der zunächst die Bestände des Deutschen Literaturarchivs Marbach und der UB Frankfurt/M. erschließt, aber erweitert werden soll. Hinzu kommen Fachinformationen und ein Linkkatalog. Die 'Erlanger Liste' gehört zu den Initiatoren des Projekts und weist deshalb sehr gerne auf diese Errungenschaft hin.
