CrossAsia Campus uses new technological features to simplify access to licensed databases and is committed to further develop CrossAsia into an East Asia research alliance. CrossAsia, in its role as information technology platform of the SSG 6.25, had successfully assisted research and education by providing access to relevant electronic information and resources. Within East Asian studies in Germany CrossAsia currently counts as the main portal for individual researchers, teachers and students to various information pools and databases. With the help of a number of new technological features this portal developed into a research environment which enables individuals and groups of researchers to use CrossAsia as a platform for their own and group projects and allows an easy exchange of information and data. After a testing phase in cooperation with our partners in Tübingen, Heidelberg and Berlin (see above), we achieved within this project to open the virtual research environment CrossAsia Campus to all CrossAsia users as a platform that on one side provides access to the CrossAsia databases and information pools and on the other side is connected via WebDAV with their home workstation.
The CrossAsia Campus WebDAV provides access for registered users to a personal online storage space, to one they may share within a defined group and to storage space accessible worldwide (logged in CrossAsia users have access to their CrossAsia Campus environment).
