Through this service, thirty (30) academic libraries have acquired a single, centrally located, Library Management Information System , resulting in a catalog of bibliographic records and established authorities that are now common to all institutions (existing shared bibliographic records are consolidated in the central system of ILSaS). Also all the library automated functions were carried over from the local to the central system. These functions are acquisitions, circulation, tracking serial holdings, etc. In the new collaborative system, libraries will retain their autonomy with respect to all of its functions except cataloging.
AMELib aims to provide books accessible via the Internet to all beneficiaries who are print-disabled users of academic libraries in the country. It is also the first attempt to establish a collective online public access catalogue (OPAC), which is documented on the basis of international standards, the available accessible literature in Greece, while following the international developments.
Zephyros is a gateway to identify available books, journals and other materials in the Greek Academic Libraries’ catalogs. The interface is user friendly and is designed based on the Z39.50 protocol.
Zephyros has been created by the Information and Technology Services of the University of Crete Library. A key element in the design and implementation of Zephyros is to provide a homogeneous environment for search and retrieval of bibliographic information from the Greek Academic Libraries’ databases. Also it provides advanced services to its guest-users, such as the ability to create personal accounts, to save searches and records etc.

The establishment of TQMU was funded by the “Operational Programme for Education and Initial Vocational Training” (EPEAEK). The TQMU’s coordinator was the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) and the members of the Observation Committee were Dr Vassilios Papazoglou, Professor of NTUA and Dr. George Zachos, Director of the LIC-UI.
The agency was upgraded with the funding of the Hellenic Academic Libraries Link (Heallink) under the Operational Programme “Digital Convergence”. Professor Nikolaos Mitrou is the Professor responsible for the project and Dr. George Zachos the local responsible.
