Improvements to the Library Catalogue

As a result of your feedback, we've made the following changes to the Library Catalogue:

  • Different colour buttons to make Start Over, Another Search and Request Item options easier to see.

  • Simpler layout on the first brief results screen:
    • The call numbers and location details are now in the full record. Click the Full details link to view.
    • Request this item button only appears on items available for request.

  • Full record view shows all the information about the item - no need to click on any tabs.

  • The permanent link to this item is now at the bottom of the full record. This is a URL (or web-link) which you can save or bookmark and will always link you to that item.
Did you know that you can:
  • tell if an item is available online by looking at the Item Location? Electronic item means that book or article is available online.

  • find electronic items by limiting your search? Select e-books or e-journals from the entire collection pick-list by the search entry box.

  • re-sort your results on keyword search? Click on the links title or date near the top of the search results page.
