bullet  Warwick: New Library Online Catalogue 

The Library has launched its new online catalogue. It is radically different from the existing OPAC in look and feel, and brings major improvements in functionality. For example, you will be able to:

  • Build advanced searches using multiple fields
  • Search for phrases or words near each other
  • See if a book has been recently returned
  • View electronic full-text records or other media, e.g., pictures, from within OPAC
  • Mark records for saving
  • Export or email records to yourself in a format suitable for a reference management service such as ProCite or EndNote
  • Select whether notifications from the Library should be sent to you by post or email.

There will be a transition period until mid-October while we transfer from our existing catalogue to the new one. Until this is complete there will be a link from the new to the 'old' catalogue.
