Is it possible to add new databases / catalogs?

System information: [ Citavi Version 3.3, Windows Vista, English, Other browser, MS Office 2007, - ]


Is it possible to add new databases / catalogs if the one we're after is not found in the master list? I'm at the University of Sheffield, which doesn't appear to be available either for ISBN download or for Location searches.

Also, a related question: if an entry appears in the list for ISBN download but not the list for Location searches, is there anything that a user can do about that? Or is that a function of the library's computing setup? (The University of Leeds falls into this category).

Hello Simon,

yes, you can request new databases /library catalogs here ( if you look for a catalog that is not there:


If you do not find that extremely intuitive I must admit that you are quite right. I think we should change that.
You can also simply send us an email with the name and the web page of the catalog. We will contact them right away. We are always happy to add catalogs that our users need.

Best regards
