Main Catalogue (OPAC)

OPAC - Open Public Access Catalogue

OPAC is the general user interface of the main electronic catalogue of the library. The catalogue makes available some 60 percent of books' stock and 80 percent of periodicals. Books acquired after 1985 and a great part of periodicals acquired after 1981 are already catalogued in this system. The rest of periodicals is catalogued in another system, called Register. Older stock is searchable in paper catalogues. BME OMIKK, similarly to several large libraries worldwide, uses Aleph integrated library system for most library processes. (Aleph was developed by Ex-Libris Group.)

The OPAC interface of Aleph helps searching documents using simple or Boolean queries in multiple fields and provides browsing. The registered users of the library may use advanced services, check their circulation data, renew the library lending period or reserve items for borrowing in the near future.

Using OPAC one can get information not just on the availability of the items but their stock information, that is their location on the shelves, if the document is stored in public space of the library. If the item is in some non-public storage facility, the user can submit request on the item from the storage facilities for local use or for borrowing, when using OPAC at the terminals in the library.

For further details, please use Help of Aleph or watch presentation on-line.

Search returns all items in the catalogue that match the query exactly. As a default setting, the list is sorted in reverse order of publications' dates that is the newest is the first, and the oldest is the last.

Browsing returns all items in the catalogue beginning from the expression in the query in alphabetic (alphanumeric) order.
