Website Relaunch

A website and all pages attached are like a house or a library if you prefer. After a while, the technology used so far is outdated, everything looks old-fashioned, the floor squeaks in every corner. At some point, it is about time to modernise the whole complex. That is, what we have done at the IATUL Office. After many months of brainstorming, conceptualising, writing, erasing, rewriting, consultation with our friends from TUM Library IT & Technical Services, designing, texting, and 4729 cups of coffee, we are proud to present the new IATUL website to you. It offers you a fresh look, is optimized for mobile terminals and you can find here all important information on IATUL and its members. In a continuous development we aim to make the website a platform focusing on our members because they are IATUL’s core.We hope you like it and welcome any suggestion to make it even better.

Enjoy your new portal to the International Association of University Libraries!
