4. What does the search in the Regensburger Verbundklassifikation mean?

As the sorting of all media on the shelves of the Ilmenau University Library follows the Regensburger Verbundklassifikation (RVK), a survey of this scheme is provided in IDT. You find the link on the RVK overview page in the footer of IDT. Please note that not all information centers and data providers use the RVK and therefore not all data records in the IDT can be searched for in this way.
