Abstract (english): This paper gives a summary of the activities of the German chemist and Nobel laureate Wilhelm Ostwald (1853 - 1932) in the area of scholarly information, communication, and publication at the beginning of the twentieth century. In 1911 Ostwald, with others, founded the "Brücke" (Bridge), an organization with aims similar to those of the famous Institut International de Bibliographie in Brussels. The paper looks at connections to other institutions and individuals in the area of documentation and information science, especially in Germany, for example, the Institut für Techno-Bibliographie and the German librarian Julius Hanauer, one of the German promoters of the Universal Decimal Classification.
