Changeover to a new library system


Within the NRW-wide project "GO:AL" (Go (to) ALMA), the University Library will switch to a statewide standardized library management system in the form of the ALMA platform in August 2022.

ALMA is a cloud-based software for our library services that enables acquisitions, management, and delivery of print and digital resources.

Concurrent with the ALMA conversion will be a switch from the current KatalogPlus to a new Discovery system. The new Discovery will have the same functionality as KatalogPlus:

It will enable convenient literature searches based on search engine technology, making it easier to get started in new subject areas. Access to the user account will remain integrated.

We will inform you in due time about the further steps and possible usage and service restrictions.
