Library Catalog Upgraded

Jun 16, 2009

The Library catalog system was recently upgraded, and the online catalog now has a new look and feel. We hope you'll like the new catalog screens and find them easier to use.

Through the Library's membership in the CARLI consortium, we share the catalog system with 76 other academic libraries in the state of Illinois.   The collections of all 76 member libraries are searchable through the I-Share catalog.   CARLI staff manage the system for us.
