Library catalogs

A library catalog is a searchable collection of records of every item in a library. The catalog will point you to the location of a particular source, or group of sources, that the library owns on your topic. Since every library collection is unique, every catalog is also unique.

The ITC Library catalogue, called Adlib, contains various sources of information on the core business of ITC: GIS and remote sensing. It contains printed as well as digital sources.


You may use a library catalog

  • to find out what items the library owns on your topic.
  • to find where a specific item is located in the library.
