A major upgrade coming soon

ORBilu has been in existence for almost 10 years now. Developed by the team of librarians at the University of Liège, a lot of work has been done on their side for several years to bring ORBi up to date with modern technology. Quite advanced at the time, you will agree that nowadays the user interface and the technology behind it is very outdated.

Of course, cosmetic changes are important, but the new version is particularly exciting because of the new features it brings, both for your as a user and for the referencing and visibility of your publications. Picking only one example, you can now simply enter the DOI, the title of the article or even the PDF itself to have all the metadata filled in, and collected from even more sources than before. The tool comes with even more features and updates; you can ask us if you are interested.  


The ORBilu team was able to test part of the new version and we are thrilled to let you know that we will also be moving to this new version within the next few months, with a planned release during 2023 Spring!!!
