Luxary novelty


The library is moving forward: new journal entitled: AABNER

Now we have access to the first open access research journal in the fields of biblical studies and Near Eastern research.

The logo of our EBAF library appears on the AABNER portal as “Support” of this journal. We have access to the paper and electronic version of the Journal. All our researchers can access it from our library's digital catalog portal via the link opposite on the right entitled: AABNER (it is now a link to our digital resources).

You can visit the Aabner magazine website by clicking on the following links:

The logo is now added:

Good tasting ! The Librarian Fr Bernard NTAMAK, op.


Since April 24, 2022, we have moved to the latest version of Koha in our library
thanks to Tamil, our now service provider. And above all, we have changed servers
and search engines. We have even changed the presentation and design of our catalog
and our notices, which are now more readables. As a search engine, we are now using "Elastic search" which saves us valuable research time
due to its speed and is a considerable improvement over Zebra. In short: we are on top with these improvements! Welcome to the library of living books and innovations! Br Bernard NTAMAK, op. Library Director

A new section entitled: "Luxury novelty" reporting the acquisition of the week is available online. Check out our facebook page:
