Beluga – the catalog for Hamburg

Beluga is the new catalog for library holdings of Hamburg libraries. Since 3rd December more than 7 million titels from scientific libraries in Hamburg, 6 million titles from German Nationallizenzen and many more articles from Online Contents database are available for discovery.

The Beluga project of Hamburg Libraries has first surfaced in 2010. And til  the end of project in 2010, it has helped libraries to review “their catalog” from customers point of view in more than one way.  Before beluga was to go online for real, it had to undergo a complete technical redesign. Like our own catalog TUBfind beluga is now based on the open source software vufind and makes use of the Central Index of GBV.
