Exciting News About Our Catalog

Exciting News About Our Catalog

You may have noticed that our catalog got a fresh new look!

screenshot of the new catalog home page

While the color scheme is different, every search function and button is in the same place as it was. There will be one huge exciting change coming at the beginning of the school year, however…(drumroll please)…

You’ll get your own accounts!

No more wondering if you turned that one book in, and no longer will you need to ask a librarian to put a book on hold for you and then wonder if she actually remembered to. Check back right before school starts for a tutorial on how to access and use your new catalog account!
