FGV launches unified catalog for its three libraries
Fundação Getulio Vargas has just unified the archive databases of the three libraries in its Library System, in Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Brasilia. As of now, the public can consult the system using a single online catalog.
The unification of these databases will bring about various benefits for the FGV community. For example, it will eliminate bibliographic search duplication in the online catalog, thereby making it easier to discover other publications.
The user registration process and loan policy have also been standardized. This will enable students, professors and employees to use FGV’s libraries in Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Brasilia. Merely by showing their access card, they will be able to enjoy the same services and experiences at all three libraries.
Through the online catalog, users can request books that are at a library in a different city and they will be sent to their local library within three to five working days. Another advantage for users is the centralization of available FGV eBooks in a single place. In other words, the archives of the three physical libraries will be available to the entire FGV community.
“The unification of the libraries’ catalogs will expand the FGV academic community’s research possibilities and save efforts and resources for students, researchers and FGV. The unification process was complex, but now it is complete, it will permit greater integration within our community,” says the director of the FGV Library System, Professor Marieta de Moraes Ferreira.
