New e-resources for 2021

In addition to our move to a new catalogue, this winter was also a period of major additions to our digital resources. We joined the Consortium of Swiss Academic Libraries and signed new contracts with major publishers. Here are some of the new accesses we unlocked to help you study in the time of COVID-19.

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

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. The current RERO Explore will be disabled.

Between October 23 and December 7, 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.
