The University of São Paulo has 70 libraries installed in various units of education, museums and research institutes on various campi. These libraries make up USP’s Integrated System of Libraries (SIBi).
SIBi manages USP’ Bibliographic Database (DEDALUS), which records the collections of the system’s libraries, as well as its scientific output and that of theses/dissertations defended at USP.
Using DEDALUS one can make simultaneous consultations in all of the University’s libraries or in specific catalogues of each library. Thereby, the user is able to access information on any item in the collection and also have access to the complete text when available.
The SIBi Services Network – SibiNet -, allows users access to electronic journals signed by USP and CAPES, electronic books (e-books) and referential and complete text databases.
