OhioLINK Catalog

The OhioLINK catalog interface has been updated and debuted to users today. Same great service from the catalog with a new look. From OhioLINK:

With the approval of the Library Advisory Council, as well as reviews by the ICS, DMS and USC committee, the refreshed interface for the OhioLINK Central Catalog has been released today for general use.

The changes to the catalog are concentrated on the look and feel of the interface. No changes have been made to the indexing or fundamental functions of the catalog. -- Zoe Stewart-Marshall, OhioLINK, Assistant Director, User Services Development
