Muskingum Catalog has a new look and improved features

The library's catalog has been updated with some improved features that will help you when you are searching for books and more.

Search improvements

  • Choose a tab based on the type of search you are doing. If you know the title or author use one of those tabs. Otherwise begin with keyword. The ISBN search can be found on the More Options tab.
  • Select the My Accounts tab to renew books or see what you have checked out.
  • Select limits by date, type, or language to fine-tune your results. This is optional.
  • You can also limit to items not checked out. Remember, this will exclude electronic books and will show reference books in your results.

Results improvements:

  • Only see items available
  • Re-sort results after searching
  • Request items or add them to list to print or email
  • Quickly see shelving location, call number, and status (if it is available to be checked out or if it is already checked out)
Contact Andrew Whitis or Kate Wenger if you have questions about these changes.
