New Catalogue and Registration

At the beginning of December 2020, we will introduce a new network of scientific libraries (SLSP, Swiss Library Service Platform) and a new library system. The new system is based on the latest generation of the library software Alma and Primo. The transition implies the following changes for customers of the University Library Bern.

New research platform

As from December 7, 2020, the holdings of the University Library Bern will be searchable and accessible over a new research platform (swisscovery Universität und PH Bern). Swissbib (green and orange) and NEBIS will be discontinued.

The new library network SLSP (Swiss Library Service Platform) brings together 475 scientific libraries.

The changeover makes it necessary for all customers - existing and new customers - to re-register on the SLSP-platform.
