Greek Academic and Special Libraries Federated Catalogue (HEAL-Cat.)

Through this service, the integration of the 68 bibliographic catalogs of Greek and Cypriot libraries (Academic, Research, etc.) will take place at regular intervals, leading library users to seek their material through a naturalized union catalog. HEAL-Cat 9th edition 2014, contains 4,089,231 entries from 68 different bibliographic databases.

ILL System

The Online InterLibrary Loan application Management System smILLe (smILLe - system management InterLibrary Loan electronically) for Libraries and Information Centers is a web application that supports InterLibrary loans both between the library and its users as well as between libaries. This is a pioneering system for Greece, since it was developed as an open source software that allows systems to interface using the ISO ILL protocol.

One of smILLe's advantages is that it is divided into subsystems which make it easier for the librarian to manage. Since these subsystems have full integration for the accounting of the loan applications, it allows all possible actions that the interlibrary loan services perform with different item providers within Greece and abroad.

Zephyros

Zephyros is a gateway to identify available books, journals and other materials in the Greek Academic Libraries’ catalogs. The interface is user friendly and is designed based on the Z39.50 protocol.
Zephyros has been created by the Information and Technology Services of the University of Crete Library. A key element in the design and implementation of Zephyros is to provide a homogeneous environment for search and retrieval of bibliographic information from the Greek Academic Libraries’ databases. Also it provides advanced services to its guest-users, such as the ability to create personal accounts, to save searches and records etc. 

 


 

Greek Scientific Journals Electronic Index

This is a service that gathers and lists bibliographic information, i.e. metadata, for the articles included in the Greek scientific journals, in order to facilitate search in the Greek scientific literature and to identify materials included in Greek scientific publications.

 

Greek Scientific Information Digital Resources Index
The service provides basic and advanced services for recording, search and retrieval of a wide range of information of a digital source, and it enables automated collection and basic indexing of metadata for specific digital resources, aiming to create an automated directory (repository aggregator).

 

Central Infrastructure for providing an Integrated Library Environment as a Service (ILSaS)

Through this service, thirty (30) academic libraries have acquired a single, centrally located, Library Management Information System , resulting in a catalog of bibliographic records and established authorities that are now common to all institutions (existing shared bibliographic records are consolidated in the central system of ILSaS). Also all the library automated functions were carried over from the local to the central system. These functions are acquisitions, circulation, tracking serial holdings, etc. In the new collaborative system, libraries will retain their autonomy with respect to all of its functions except cataloging.

 

National Entity Catalog for Science and Research (EKOEE / DHARE)

Catalog of uniquely identified entities for Academic and Research Institutions, i.e., entity- person (entity-person for academic personnel, researchers) and entity- organization (entity-organization for academic institutions , research centers/institutes). The purpose of this service is to deal with cases of alternative formulations of the names of entities so as to facilitate and serve the development of a uniform policy regarding the operation of Subject and Institutional Repositories.
