Abstract (in English): 

The ELMCIP-Knowledge Base (Electronic Literature as a Model of Creativity and Innovation in Practice) provides researchers, students, and a general audience of electronic literature new ways of accessing existing scholarship in the field. With a special focus on cross-references, the relational database documents the field of research and creative practice in electronic literature. While focusing on the display of social entities and geographical roots, connections between actors and works in the communities field become visible. The strength of the database lies in the variety and cross-referenced nature of record types that feed the database: author, creative work, critical writing, event, organization, publisher, and teaching resources are being documented and referenced. In this talk, I will present suggestions how to integrate the ELMCIP-Knowledge Base into regular writing, research, and teaching practices.
