Our New Beta Catalog Launches with Improved Features

The main search box on the library homepage has been updated to make use of a new Beta Catalog developed by libraries in the IDS project.

This search engine allows users to search for books and media here in Milne, in IDS Project libraries (these items can be delivered in less than 3 days) or in libraries around the world (these books may take 7 to 10 business days to arrive).

New and improved features include:

  • Spell checking for misspelled search terms
  • Estimated time of arrival for items not held in Milne Library
  • RSS feeds for searches
  • The ability to export items to citation software (like EndNote or Zotero)
  • A quick link to create citations for each record.

Our new Catalog is still in a Beta testing phase, so please provide us with any feedback about your searches.
