Loan service closing on December 2nd

On December 7 2020, the Institute’s Library will join the new network of the Swiss scientific and academic libraries, the Swiss Library Service Plateform (SLSP), along with more than 470 other libraries. From this date on, our print collections and electronic resources to which we subscribe will only be accessible through the search engine of this new platform: swisscovery.

As we speak, 30 million bibliographic references are migrating to the new platform. This transition phase has already resulted in a limitation of some services as we prepare for the phasing out of the current RERO catalogue.

For the final stage of the transition, the loan service will be closed from December 2nd (6pm) until the morning of December 7. You will no longer be able to borrow documents or renew them. The RERO Explore catalogue will remain available during that time.

We would also like to remind you that you can pre-register your account for the new catalogue by following the instructions posted previously.

The Library is aware of the impact these limitations may have on your academic activities during this transition period and apologises for the inconvenience these may cause.
