COPAC: the CURL OPAC
 
COPAC is an Online catalogue based on the database of the Consortium of
University Research Libraries. It is being produced by the CURL OPAC
Project, based at Manchester University and funded by the Joint
Information Systems Committee.
 
COPAC currently contains records for approximately three million titles,
giving access to the online holdings of Cambridge University, Edinburgh
University, Glasgow University, Leeds University, Oxford University and
Trinity College Dublin. A further eight CURL member library catalogues
are to be added shortly and COPAC is being updated continuously as
libraries add new records to the CURL database.
 
These large research libraries have many older documents, specialist
collections and particular strengths, such as foreign language
materials, which make COPAC a very valuable resource for the researcher.
Most of the records are for books, reports etc. but there are increasing
numbers of records for other materials such as music and video. Records
for journals and other periodicals are also available.
 
A printed User Guide is available to help you search COPAC. To obtain a
copy contact the COPAC Help Desk.
 
COPAC is available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year.
 
COPAC is freely available to any researcher who wishes to access it.
