Information about Mediathek HGK FHNW

    Since 2015, the Mediathek has combined the media holdings of the Institutes of Art, Industrial Design, Interior Design and Scenography, Fashion, Visual Communication, Post-Industrial Design (Hyperwerk), Integrative Design | Master Studio as well as the research institutes Institute for Experimental Design and Media Cultures and Institute for Aesthetic Practice and Theory. In 2017, the Mediathek won the "Future Shapers in Libraries 2017" award (Zukunftsgestalter in Bibliotheken 2017) for its Integrated Catalogue (InK I) because, in addition to the holdings listed in NEBIS, it also connected open access sources and the HGK's special collections via a single search.

    With the system change to SLSP, the InK was also adapted. It is mobile first, follows the AMP principles and currently makes the digital special collections of the Mediathek accessible. Take a look for yourself.
