Library Catalog: New Look & New Features

June 16, 2009 at 3:11 pm | Posted in I-Share, IIT Library Catalog, library catalog | Comments Off on Library Catalog: New Look & New Features

The recent upgrade done by the Consortium for Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois (CARLI) has resulted in a new look and new features to both the IIT catalog and I-Share, the shared catalog of 76 universities in Illinois.

Users of the online catalog will still be able to request and renew items, as well as view delivery status, due date and fee information.  New features include:

  • Subject and Author search tabs provide quick access
  • Limits such as format, language and date easily added to your search
  • Build your list of titles using “My List”
  • Expanded details for requests, renewals and fines in “My Account”
  • Improved access for adaptive/assistive technology
  • Search tab features materials “New in the Catalog”

Users of the online catalog will notice changes to the design of the IIT local catalog over the coming weeks as we continue to customize the new search interface.

If you have any questions, you can ask us using phone, IM, email or drop by the desk on the upper level of Galvin Library.  As always, we welcome your feedback.
