MetaLib allows you to search several electronic resources 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.

Access: 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 English and American Studies library computer terminals.

Further information and help in German can be found in the BenutzerInnen-Handbuch zu MetaLib (PDF).
