MetaLib

MetaLib allows you to search several electronic resources (catalogues, databases, e-journals) simultaneously, to set up search sets and to manage your search results.

In order to search relevant information you can use predefined quicksearch sets (e.g. Literature/Language in QuickSearch) or choose subject specific resource bundles or individual e-resources (MetaSearch). Whenever a resource is compatible with SFX, the SFX button will allow you to find out whether a full text of a search result is available at Vienna University.
Further information and help in German can be found in the BenutzerInnen-Handbuch zu MetaLib (PDF).

If you are a student or employee of Vienna University, you should access licensed electronic resources by logging in with your u:account  via u:access from wherever you are. Other users are welcome to access licensed databases from our Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies library computer terminals.
