Updated Library Catalog Search Interface

twitterMCK_FB_LIKE

As of today, our catalog search interface has been updated with a new look! Many of the features are the same, but located in different places. Here is a quick overview of some of the features:

Search Results

Holding information such as location in the library, call number, availability and summary are conveniently located on the search result page. Limiters such format, publication year, etc. are still available in the left column. Click any item title for detailed information and request buttons.

Access Options
Clicking the title of an item from the search result will bring you to the detailed item page where you can easily find access options to find Salve items on the shelf (or request them and we can retrieve it for you!), request the item from HELIN libraries or via Interlibrary Loan. Button options will change depending on format and which libraries hold the item. If you are not already logged in, you may be prompted to enter your Salve credentials to request.

Additional Features
On any detailed item page, scroll down for more tools and information such as relevant subject headings, “browse the shelf,” additional “editions and formats,” etc.

Known Issues

Unfortunately at this time the “Cite” button does not export correctly into Refworks — it is linking to the previous version of Refworks which is no longer supported. The vendor knows about this issue and is working on a fix. However, you can still create the citation from the catalog by choosing a citation style (such as APA) and copying/pasting the citation into your paper (always double-check the format against a manual or a trusted source like Owl Purdue University’s Online Writing Lab).

Search the catalog from the library homepage!
