Find a book (the catalogues)

The collections of the uDDSP and other public health collections are indexed in:

  • the Renouvaud catalogue, catalogue of the libraries of the canton of Vaud network (the IUMSP is a library registered in the Sciences et patrimoine (Sciences and heritage) interface
  • the Swissbib metacatalogue  (the CHUV collaborators log in using their CHUV username)

Catalogue searching is carried out online, by means of search interfaces.


In the Renouvaud catalogue, you use the main search page (e.g. entering a title, author, keyword); you then select your chosen library on the left search page. To see the publications available at the IUMSP, select IUMSP. To request/reserve a publication, you must be connected with your reader's card number.

To find the requested publication in our collection on the library’s shelves, just write down the classification (shelf mark) available on the IUMSP’s copy sheet (example of a shelf mark: WB-102).
