Union Catalogue for Public Libraries - ÖVK
The database ÖVK is the freely accessible union catalogue of the GBV public libraries. It contains more than 3.95 million title holdings with more than 6.5 million record holdings from over 140 public libraries. Most documents are available via interlibrary loan.

The ÖVK is comparable with the union catalogue (GVK) for scientific GBV libraries. The bibliographic title and holding records of the participating public libraries are gradually included and updated regularily. The possiblity to define specific views on individual libraries, libraries from a county or a federal state allow very selective usage of the catalogue.
