German National Index
The Cooperative Library Network Berlin-Brandenburg (KOBV) and the Library Service Centre Baden-Württemberg (BSZ) started the beta-operation of the German National Index on July 7, 2016.
The German National Index includes the holdings of the six library networks in Germany. The data is updated regularly.
With the German National Index the nationwide interlibrary loan is fully integrated into WILBERT. 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.
