  • Readers can consult their past loans

Union catalogue

Your online catalogue can be included in a union catalogue of libraries. Thanks to our meta-search engine (available separately) in the form of a mini website, your readers can search several catalogues simultaneously and thus increase the chances of finding the titles they are looking for.


This tool is simple to set up and does not imply any change of infrastructure on your side. And because it can query libraries managed with different library systems, it does not require all libraries to adopt the same library system requiring a complex data migration. Icing on the cake: this solution is very affordable, even for the smallest libraries.


The following union catalogues are powered by our meta-search engine :
