Update to library catalog

By

You may have noticed that our library catalog looks a little different. That’s due to a recent system update from our vendor.

The catalog is still the same, Worldcat Discovery, and there is nothing new to learn. You still enter a search term(s) and apply filters as needed, such as format, year, and language. What’s new is the amount of information on the search results screen.

Say you are looking for information on Alexander the Great. You might enter the search terms Alexander Great Macedonia. On the result screen, you see the book “Alexander of Macedon” by Peter Green published in 1991. Availability is noted as well as the call number. There is also a link to a newer ebook published in 2013.

Access the catalog from the library’s homepage

We think these updates provide easier access to our resources in all types of formats. Let us know what you think!
