New Features in the Library Catalog

Posted on August 23rd, 2021 by

You may notice that our library catalog and discovery system powered by WorldCat Discovery has a modernized look along with some new features.

The improvements include:

  • Highlighted Search Terms
    The search terms you enter will be highlighted in yellow. This will make it much more apparent why you got the results you did and then help you determine if they are relevant.
  • Item Details More Visible
    Item details (physical description, language, subject headings, table of contents, etc.) are now more easily found in each item record. 
  • New Access Options Box
    When you open up an item record, a new box will appear on the top right side of the screen to show you how you can access the item. The box  will let you know if an item is available online or located in the Library. If not available, you’ll see the Request from another library button.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask us: folke@gustavus.edu
