OLIS Location Codes

The OLIS library catalogue uses shortened forms of library names to give details of an item's location. The following table lists the code and label for libraries and collections having holdings on OLIS, and is primarily provided to help users searching OLIS via Z39.50. (Users searching OLIS via SOLO need not concern themselves with these codes, as SOLO already displays descriptive labels rather than codes.) The list is in alphabetical order by code. This data is also available, in several machine-readable formats, as part of OxPoints.
