Welcome to the website of the ITC Library
Since you have been studying at ITC we suppose you know the ITC Library very well.
During your study at the ITC we tried to create an environment for you, in which you were able to select, acquire and present the information necessary for your study.
Besides that we tried to teach you the necessary skills to do so.
Since you are back in your own country you can no longer profit anymore from the environment of the ITC Library. Maybe there are very good facilities in your neighborhood and you do not need ITC library anymore.
We found out that many alumni like to keep in touch with ITC library for their information needs.
That is why we made a special section on our homepage for you.
We hope you understand we cannot give you the same support and services as during your stay in ITC but we will try to explain the different services you can use from our homepage and which services we can offer.
First of all our catalogue ADLIB is accessible for you through the Internet. The catalogue contains bibliographic data on books, journal titles, conference proceedings, maps, audio visual materials, web sites, MSc theses, PhD theses, IFA PM reports and all other output from ITC staff members and students. For many sources, only bibliographic data is available, but also links to full text are provided.
Furthermore, you can use our Digital Library to have access to other databases. All information listed deals with the core business of ITC: GIS and Remote Sensing.
- The journals listed under Electronic Journals (at ITC) will in most cases give only limited access to the websites of publishers of scientific journals.
- Scirus and Google Scholar are important search engines on the web, which give access to qualified scientific information.
Full text sources are also available from Academic Output 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001 or 2000. For each year the academic output is classified according some categories. Most MSc theses are available as full text since 2002; the same goes for PhD theses. Also other types of academic output sometimes have links to full text.
Under News you may find our weekly published list of Latest Additions.
The General Information section gives you information on how to use various library services. Be aware that some databases are only accessible for staff and students of ITC.
You cannot borrow books from ITC Library but in some cases we will send photocopies of parts of books or journal articles.
If you have any questions, suggestions or remarks, please contact us and we will get back to you as soon as possible and inform you on the services we can offer you.
