The Inter-Library Loan Index
With respect to the loosening of Coronavirus restrictions libraries will open to the public successively. But the operation of interlibarary loan is still subject of restrictions.
Orders for copies of articles from magazines/series will be delivered to the users by the "home libraries" via e-mail as part of an emergency operation.
This regulation applies until 31.05.2020.
Please note that some libraries, in particular the Berlin University Libraries, currently won't take part in the inter-library loan and the delivery may take longer.
The German National Index includes the holdings of the six library networks in Germany. The data is updated regularly. The technical operation of the underlying Solr cloud application is being taken over by the BSZ.
With the German National Index the nationwide interlibrary loan is fully integrated into the KOBV portal respectively the BSZ-ILL portal. Compared to the previously used method (Metasearch Z39.50) the search is significantly faster, in addition users can filter their search results as usual through facets.
The German National Index is a project of the “AG der Verbundsysteme” and is being developed together by all German networks.
