A network composed of 11 libraries
When we say that LINK edu Alliance Citadel is “more libraries combined into one”, we mean that each of our locations (Belgrade, Banja Luka, Sarajevo, Bucharest, Timisoara and Miami) has its specific library which is part of a larger network named LINK edu Alliance Citadel. Each of these libraries brings unique value and specificities to our network, contributing to the diversity and comprehensiveness of our library collection.
This magnificent collection covers a wide range of topics and areas, providing students and teachers in our institutions with a wealth of resources for learning, research and inspiration. All of this makes LINK edu Alliance Citadel an essential component of our educational system.
LINK edu Alliance Citadel serves not only as a primary source of information for the academic and professional needs of the alliance, our course attendees and students but also as a refuge for those seeking knowledge, offering them a serene and stimulating environment for study and contemplation.
Although located in multiple places – in Belgrade, Banja Luka, Sarajevo, Bucharest, Timisoara and Miami, LINK edu Alliance Citadel provides unique access to educational resources for all those who are part of our educational alliance. Regardless of the geographical location, our members have access to the same high-quality materials, enabling them to engage in deep learning and research.
LINK edu Alliance Citadel is more than just a collection of books and other library resources – it is a living organism that grows and develops with our students and teachers, adapting to their needs and providing them with the resources they need to realize their full potential.
As such, LINK edu Alliance Citadel is a true citadel of knowledge. Providing a refuge for education and innovation and laying the foundations for future generations of scientists, artists, innovators and leaders, through its work, it contributes not only to its individual success but also to the success of its members and the progress of the entire educational community.
In addition to physical libraries, LINK edu Alliance Citadel is also connected to online libraries.
Online library Ebook Central is one of the most widespread academic services. This online library offers more than 700,000 titles in English and its use is free for LINK edu Alliance course attendees and students.
Web of Science
LINK edu Alliance is officially the first and only private educational system in Serbia that has access to services on the Web of Science platform. A three-year contract between LINK edu Alliance and Clarivate, the owner of Web of Science, ensures equal opportunities for advancement and development for teachers, students and expert associates.
Before this, only state universities, institutes and higher education institutions in Serbia had access to WOS services and databases, while private colleges, faculties and scientific institutions did not have this access, making it difficult to achieve a satisfactory level of work quality and improvement.
The collaboration between LINK edu Alliance and the Web of Science portal allows teachers from LINK institutions and interested students to access highly referenced scientific publications, aiding in seamless scientific development and professional advancement. Additionally, this contributes to enriching teaching and learning content, keeping up with the latest scientific achievements and providing students with the most up-to-date knowledge.
Members of LINK edu Alliance have access to all the libraries of their institutions, providing the opportunity for diverse and comprehensive research and the chance to consider multiple perspectives on a particular topic.
Furthermore, LINK edu Alliance Citadel uses technology to connect these libraries, enabling members to access all available resources, regardless of their geographic location. This integrative approach facilitates efficient resource sharing, knowledge dissemination and collaboration enhancement.
At its core, LINK edu Alliance Citadel is a true citadel of knowledge – a blend of different libraries, collections and resources, together forming a unique and comprehensive knowledge base available to our members.
