Through the OPAC you can check whether we own a copy of a work, which library stores it and whether it can be borrowed - in real time.
You can select the catalogue you would like to search, by clicking on Scelta catalogo:
- Catalogo generale (General catalogue)
- Catalogo libro moderno (Modern books catalogue)
- Catalogo periodici (Journals catalogue)
- Catalogo libro antico (Ancient books catalogue)
- Catalogo cartografia (Map catalogue)
- Catalogo materiale multimediale (Multimedia catalogue)
- Catalogo film e documentari (Movies and documentaries catalogue)
For journals, you can search either by journal title phrase or by journal title words, as the authors and titles of individual articles and essays are not indexed in the OPAC (but you can find them in databases); in the case of current subscriptions, the OPAC lets you know which issues of a journal are available at the Library. Please remember that, besides owning print journals, the Library also owns several e-journals, which support full-text access.
An OPAC screen is made up of two sections:
- the upper section displays the menu, which appears in every screen and offers key functions and user options for the system;
- the lower section displays the various search options and the results.
