Introducing LibreCat

Unlock Research

As science evolves towards the principles of openess so digital library and research services will. LibreCat provides powerful tools to collect, distribute and present scientific output that matters.

Agile Development

Let's put agility on the menu and meet demands on time. We work to unify library workflows in accordance with research and administrative requirements. For this aim, we build on strong solutions.


We avoid multiple inputs and work. LibreCat respects digital library standards and interlinks you with the fast growing landscape of innovative research services to make all our efforts visible.

Catmandu — Our Backbone

With Catmandu, LibreCat tools abstract digital library and research services as data warehouse processes. As stores we reuse MongoDB or ElasticSearch providing us with developer friendly APIs. Catmandu works with international library standards such as MARC, MODS and Dublin Core, protocols such as OAI-PMH, SRU and open repositories such as DSpace and Fedora. And, of course, we speak the evolving Semantic Web.
