Launch of Library Online Catalogue

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.
