The Sergio Vieira de Mello Library has finally
joined many other libraries and information centres which have their
library databases on the web. The new system (WEBLIS) will ensure
that the Library offers effective and efficient information and
library services to its growing number of clients. It will also
ensure that users have access to the wide library collection of
books and periodicals from their desktops.
The database can be searched in simple and advanced mode. A thesaurus
support is available to allow navigation through UNBIS thesaurus.
The multilingual UNBIS Thesaurus, created by the Dag Hammarskjöld
Library, United Nations Department of Public Information, contains
the terminology used in subject analysis of documents and other
materials relevant to United Nations programmes and activities.
It is used as the subject authority of the United Nations Bibliographic
Information System (UNBIS). Advanced searches can be made including
fields like Subject, Title, Author, Conference name, Publication
year, among others.
This will definitely enable many users to search and even reserve
the materials they would wish to borrow from their computers and
also give much visibility to the resources in the library.
