MetaLib

MetaLib is a search interface allowing you to search different licensed and free online resources (databases, catalogues, e-journals) simultaneously and to access them directly.

In addition to default quick search sets (e.g. historical studies), you also have the opportunity to select resources according to disciplines (meta search). If you log in using your u:account, you can also create your personal quick search sets and save your search queries and search results.
For further information and assistance, please read the MetaLib user manual BenutzerInnen-Handbuch zu MetaLib (PDF).
