TUKLAS is a major upgrade and replacement to the current iLib online catalog. You can visit it by clicking on the above picture, or by typing in https://ds.mainlib.upd.edu.ph/ on your web browser.
It is a union catalog so it shows results not only from the UPD collections, but also from the catalogs of the UP constituent universities.
Full integration of collection. It can show the real-time status of loans, so once it is back on-shelf you can see ASAP that a book is returned.
Newspaper and periodical results. Serials which have been indexed in the Index to Philippine Newspapers (IPN) and the Index to Philippine Periodicals (IPP) can also be found in this interface.
TUKLAS is developed solely by our University Librarian Prof. Chito N. Angeles, and is now ready for implementation following the UL’s commitment to VPAA Bautista for the piloting of a new library search for the First Semester of A.Y. 2020-2021.
