A New Look for the Catalog!
The GW Libraries catalog is getting a makeover for the Fall semester! A sneak preview (beta test) is available now by selecting the "Catalog" tab above the search box and then clicking "see our new look!"
You can help us by trying it out early and reporting any questions or problems you encounter. New features will be added throughout the summer. Search tips for power users are available to replicate "advanced search" options (i.e. search by title or author) until those features are added.
We're proud that this catalog makeover was built by our own library Scholarly Technology Group. It replaces a one-size-fits-all tool with a flexible and customizable solution to better meet the research needs for our patrons. This new tool is also being made available to other libraries under a free and open source software license. Surprised to hear the libraries write software?
