The 24th General Assembly of „Fides” was held on Sept. 4-6, 2018 in the Theological Library of the Silesian University in Katowice. The jubilee 25th General Assembly of „Fides” will be held on Sept. 3-5, 2019 in the Diocesan Library in Sandomierz. The number of members of „Fides” amounts 80 libraries.
The main project undertaken by „Fides” since June 2014 is the union catalogue of „Fides” libraries which uses Koha system. There is one installation of the system on „Fides”’ server, which is accessible via the Internet. The aim is to have one bibliographical record for all items from different libraries. The catalogue is fully controlled by authority files. As a rule, shared cataloguing of new documents in Polish NUKAT union database is adopted. Our project is based on the strong cooperation with NUKAT – the union catalogue of Polish research and academic libraries (http://katalog.nukat.edu.pl/). Thus, member libraries participating in the project are also members of NUKAT community. It helps to provide information about our holdings to the academic community and to promote religious and theological books. At the same time, the cooperation with NUKAT allows church librarians to improve their cataloguing skills.
