In order to create virtual research environments for the area of mathematics, it is essential to have high-quality access to literature, which, even today, continues to be the heart of mathematical knowledge. In this connection, the establishment of digital libraries in the field of mathematics involves building up a controlled vocabulary and a taxonomy of fine-grained topics, as well as developing processes for automated content indexing (content analysis, semantic enrichment) and assigning documents. This presentation showcases the results of the DeLiVerMATH project consisting of methods and tools for content indexing and the retrieval process as prerequisites for creating a virtual research environment in the area of literature provision. This enables the efficient and user-friendly provision and application of mathematical knowledge for future science and research in the long term.
