Where is the catalogue?

The link to the old local catalogue can no longer be found in the list of search engines for literature on our website because we stopped supporting the search function in this catalogue .

Since the 20th of March 2018 you can find the collection of Utrecht University Library in WorldCat, a catalogue in which you search the collections of thousands of libraries worldwide. Until today the old catalogue was offered alongside WorldCat to allow users to get used to this new worldwide catalogue.

The benefits of WorldCat

All over the world more scientific and scholarly information is available than ever before. Since the Utrecht University Library collections only contain a small part of all information which could be of relevance to you, from now on you will find the Utrecht collection in WorldCat, together with thousands of other library collections worldwide.  One single catalogue in which you search for scientific and scholarly sources available worldwide, but in which you can also limit your search to the collections of Dutch libraries or to the collections of Utrecht University Library. This development fits in with the trend that the search for literature increasingly starts in systems that search on a global level.
