swisscovery: New Layout

The user interface of the swisscovery research platform will appear in a new layout and offer new functions from Monday, 14.11.2022. This will change the ordering process.  

The Swiss-wide research platform swisscovery has undergone a re-design and will appear in a new look as of 14. November. With the new layout, the ordering process will be optimized and further developed. These are the most important changes:  


1. New ordering process 
The updated ordering interface is now divided into two sections: "Pick up on site" and "Further request options". This includes more detailed information on the cost of services. 

Since some special conditions apply to UZH members, there are different ordering methods for different users. Here you will find

further information on the ordering process

2. Changed view in the user account

Borrowings and orders are no longer listed under the owner library, but under the selected collection library. There you can track the order status.

3. Extended research options 
More libraries from the canton of Vaud are now listed with their holdings in swisscovery. You will find these as well as all other holdings from other Swiss universities in the new search area "swisscovery plus".
