New library catalog

Have you seen our new catalog? You may not have noticed much difference yet--until you use it--because at first glance it looks the same. But you will notice some of its improved features!  For example, the new catalog will now provide drop-down help when you start to type.

Looking for something on Donnelley and Sons? Just start typing to see some of the typing hints -- based on actual catalog records. Then you can choose one of the suggestions or simply ignore it and keep typing. You can even select to hide suggestions if they distract you.

Another nice feature is the ability for the catalog to now send you text messages. When you find an item you like, click its Availability button. You will see a small phone icon that you can click to give you a dialogue box where you can enter your mobile device number, seelct your carrier, and send a text message to yourself that includes the title and call number of the item.

These are just some of the features we think you'll enjoy!
