2011 started with the insourcing of the libraries of the Museion and the Monteverdi Conservatory, a process which was concluded in summer. Through the integration of the two libraries, the University Library not only managed to gain new contents in the field of art and music but could also attract new user groups. Already for the fourth time the Library participated in the international BIX library assessment together with 74 other libraries and was ranked second.
In autumn the second issue of the Library Journal was published focusing on educational sciences and in Bruneck-Brunico the foundation stone was laid for the new City and University Library. Last year’s most important and work-intensive event was the implementation of the Primo search engine. This discovery tool, which went online in December, brings together all library resources under one search interface.
