Information services and literature search
Information is increasingly important in today’s world and in many industries it provides a major competitive edge. But who can read every magazine and book that is important for a particular field? The flood of information keeps on getting bigger and the time available to read it shorter. Fogra has for years been archiving all the important information from the publishing and printing industry in the Fogra database. Wolfgang Hergl would be happy to answer your questions on services from the Fogra database.
NB: Information from the Fogra literature database is generally produced in German.
