UCBooks: Institutional Resource Search
The new standard in institutional resource search. A platform for students to trade books and access library content.
Due to the myriad of avenues at the university, it becomes tough for affiliates to find the study resources they need.
With this application, students can trade books and access study resources - Full-Texts, eBooks, Monographs & Journals - from the university library.
Easy to Use:
Use your phone to scan the isbn barcode to find a book.
Borrow Library Resources:
Affiliates may check availability, locate and reserve full-text library resources.
On & Off-Campus Access to Online Library Material:
You can directly read available library ebooks, monographs or journals and save holding information for future access.
Reader for Select Online Resources:
We also provide a reader for affiliates to directly access select online resources. One may save reading location and even interact with a resource by chapter.
Simple to Track:
If you search for a book that you seek, you won’t need to keep checking the app constantly. You will be notified as soon as a student posts it.
Service access is limited to institutional affiliates via valid institutional identity numbers.
Several methods crucial to the development & upkeep of this project came out of the Programming Your World, Advanced Programming & Lisp Internship classes taught at Amsterdam University College. This project is backed by the University of Amsterdam Library and the Vrije Universiteit Library.
