Library catalog upgraded

The Booth Library catalog was upgraded to a new version on July 23, 2018.  Many features and functions remain the same, so users familiar with the old version should find using the new version easy.  However, there are a number of new features that are welcome improvements.

Single Sign-On.  You may log in to your personal information using your EIU NetID and password.  Detailed instructions can be found using the Login Help button in the upper right corner of the catalog screen.

New Search Methods.  At the bottom of the screen of the new version of the catalog there is a “Browse Alphabetically” link.  This offers a suite of searches that let you specify a starting point in a list and then move forward or backward from that point as far as you like.  The Browse Alphabetically choices are:

Similar Items.  When a single bibliographic record is displayed, the catalog displays links to additional resources that have elements in common.

Responsive Web Design.  The catalog can be viewed easily with full functionality on screens of any size.

New Content.  A new set of HathiTrust Digital Library public domain records are available and updated regularly as additional content becomes available.
