Library Catalog Enhancements

The Law Library catalog is the place to go to find books (both print and electronic) in our collection.  Recently a few more features were added to the catalog to make it more useful to you.

The Library catalog can be accessed from this search box on the Law Library home page.

If we search for “Moral Panics and the Copyright Wars” we will be taken to a results page that shows us where the book is in the library and in this case tells us that it is currently checked out.  The first enhancement is that we are now given a link to request the book from inter-library loan.  If you click this link and sign in, the ILL form will be populated with the information you need to request this book.  This saves quite a bit of time and helps you get your book faster.

If you click on the title of the book you will get a look at more detailed information.  Another thing that has been added to some books is a Google Book preview.  This allows you to get a sense of what’s inside the book and whether or not it would be helpful to your research.

Finally, when you are looking at the detailed record of the book, you now have options to send the book information by email or text.  That way you can have easy access to it when you go look for the book on the shelf.

We hope these additions will be helpful to you in your research.
