Catalog

MAK+ (MAKPlus) is an electronic, fully automated, integrated library system, created and developed by the Book Institute. The system allows to create an electronic library catalogue, and user base, to register the collection items being lent or made available as well as to take care of library statistics. The work is conducted via an Internet browser. The system satisfies the requirements of Library Certificate+.

The Academic Library of VISTULA University Group switched to the MAK+ library system in winter 2013. Since then we have been working on adjusting the contents of the electronic book collection. The cataloguing of library collections in the MAK+ system is conducted with the help of the contents of the “Bibliographic Guidebook” of the National Library from which bibliographical records are taken for the local library base. The bibliographic descriptions our staff create are added to the common description base available to all system users and adapted by a team of specialists from voivodeship and municipal libraries.

The MAK+  library system is recommended by the National Library Board.

The database Server provides:

  • a uniform base of records of library descriptions (books)
  • a uniform base of readers
  • an Internet access to the collections of all MAK+  using libraries.
