Some services suspended due to the migration of the library catalogue (Oct. 23 – Dec. 7)

On December 7th 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. The current RERO Explore will be disabled.

Between October 23th and December 7th, 30 million bibliographic references will migrate to the new platform. This transition phase will result in a limitation of some services such as requests for:

  • Interlibrary loans
  • New acquisition suggestions

Loans and returns will still be possible. The RERO Explore catalogue will remain available during that time.

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.
