Dear library customers, Encore is Here! On our front page you will notice the New Generation library catalog that we are presenting for your use and your comments. While there are many new advancements that will be added gradually to the new catalog, we decided to have a soft rollout of the product in order to get your comments and suggestions.
The New Catalog provides many new enhancements to reduce the librarian in all of us and allow our customers to locate materials in much the same way as you search the Internet using Google. It has all the functionality of our traditional catalog along with the usability of the internet search engines. You no longer need to worry about author, title or subject searches; The catalog understands what you want. There’s no need to worry about spelling, the catalog will prompt you with the correct spelling. Not sure how to refine your search? not a problem, the catalog has a relationship database that will refine the search for you automatically.
There are over 50 refinements to our traditional catalog and many more to come! So take a test drive and let us know what you think!
