New Search Portal – leitir.is
The Consortium of Icelandic Libraries has launched a national search portal http://leitir.is. From this website the collections of most libraries in Iceland are searchable as well as the collections of selected special libraries and scholarly subscriptions and licenses of the Iceland Consortium.
At the web of the Iceland Consortium http://hvar.is almost all its subscriptions and licenses are searchable simultaneously (Leita að greinum í landsaðgangi). Excluded are the databases of Encyclopædia Britannica and Oxford Online.
With this new service access to the content of the Iceland Consortium will hopefully be more user friendly to the general public, researchers and academics alike.
Please notice that searching individual platforms seperately will still be available.
Any suggestions for improvements are appreciated. Please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
