… libraries record the metadata of their holdings in shared databases which have been built up and used in so-called library unions.
Data of this common databases run into local library systems and catalogs like tub.find at TUHH. These local databases are also used in the local database of loaned books as well as in the acquisition and ordering system of the particular library. Ordering via interlibrary loan is possible directly in the library union databases.
During March 2019 the “cataloguing databases” of two large library unions, the GBV Common Library Network and the SWB Library Network, will be merged to a common database including more than 180 million records. This database has the working title K10plus (~ “Katalog für zehn Bundesländer und mehr” = “catalog of 10 federal states and more”).
This fusion behind the scenes also has temporarily an impact on local library services here at TUHH.
From the midst of March until the productive start in the end of March, restrictions of services may occur. This is especially true for:
Ordering of interlibrary loans via the GBV databases will not be pssoible starting March 22, 6 pmpresumably not be possible from March 15 to March 25, ordering of interlibrary loans possible again from March 26. [Corrected March 7, 2019]
In the moment there exist certainly more comfortable places than the TUHH library. 8-) In addition, the ventilation system in the lower reading room of the tub. is not working because of cleaning work. The system in the upper reading room works.
