Discovery


Discovery is the University of Erfurt's search portal for comprehensive literature research.

Discovery systems are modern search engines in libraries. Under one search interface a library’s stock of literature and other media, articles and full texts from licensed databases and journal portals as well as free electronic texts can be found.

A discovery system is as easy and intuitive to use as Google and literally promotes one thing above all else: the discovery of knowledge and information.

"Discovery" is:

  • easy access to printed and electronic resources
  • through responsive web design ideal for mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones
  • with integrated user account management

The basic database for the Discovery system is the K10plus Central. This index contains our holdings as well as those of 400 other libraries of the Common Library Network (GBV). In addition, it currently contains more than 57 million articles and more than 34 million electronic resources.
