    Online catalogues

    Here you can find links to various online library catalogues.


    Card catalogues offer bibliographic descriptions of a given work – author, title, text edition, publisher, date, description – present in one or more libraries. An online catalogue, called OPAC – Online Public Access Catalogue – is an online database of materials held by a library or group of libraries. Users typically search a catalogue to locate books, periodicals, audio/visual materials or other items managed by a library. Online catalogues may be incomplete if a library has not converted all the bibliographic records of its catalogues into electronic format: in this case, users need to consult traditional card catalogues.



    Univaq Online Catalogue

    This is the National Library System Catalogue (SBN) containing the data of SBN L’Aquila unit libraries, consisting of all the libraries of the University of L’Aquila. It’s an intuitive and functional platform: you can search the catalogue by title, author, subject or choose an advanced search mask allowing for combined criteria. You can also search by topic or list and see the books by their covers or even visualize them as if they were on the library shelf. Accounts can be customized and search results can be shared on Facebook and Twitter.
