Pronoe service enables you to dynamically link the course content taught at undergraduate and postgraduate level at the University of Patras -analyzed in terms of thematic analysis- with the catalogue of LIC material (course analysis).
Pronoe is essentially a tool for faculty because it gives them the opportunity to have at all times an updated literature list to recommend to their students, including the ability to evaluate the collections of LIC and its level of bibliographic coverage of their courses from the existing material. This way they can identify the gaps in collections and to contribute effectively to future material LIC purchase.
