Library Catalog improvements

The Library has released a new version of its Library Catalog, offering enhancements and new features to improve your search:

  • Basic and advanced keyword search forms have merged. There is now one tab with keyword searching, with an option to switch to advanced search.
  • Improved printing and exporting, including the ability to mark multiple records.
  • Search terms are retained when switching to a new search option.
  • Vernacular character searching for languages such as Korean, Russian, or Arabic, is now available in all keyword searches. However, the vernacular must be included in the catalog record.
  • Improvements have been made to call number browse. Call number prefixes (such as f or s) are now ignored.
  • More information, including ebook platform, for full-text links in catalog records.
  • Search limits are now joined by Boolean OR rather than AND.
  • Catalog records can now be formatted into Chicago style.
  • Greatly improved Zotero support.
  • WorldCat search option added to the header of the catalog for quick access.

In the next few months, additional enhancements will be coming, including:

  • Improved access on mobile devices.
  • Catalog records details will be removed from tabs.
  • Addition of more Tables of Content to more book records.
