Beta Test the New Library Catalog

Try out the beta version of our new Library Catalog and tell us what you think! The platforms underlying the current Library Catalog and Lens are losing vendor support over the summer. In response, the Library has developed a new Library Catalog interface that features a simple, clean visual design and a variety of search options. While some features are still in development, we appreciate your feedback as we identify and fix problems before the Catalog goes into full production later this year. Want to learn more? Watch our short YouTube tutorial.
