About the Library Catalog
The Library Catalog is a record of all items owned
by the three campus libraries. Essentially all materials are listed in
the Library Catalog. More than 568,000 titles and 682,000 items
are in our catalog.
The Library began automating cataloging in 1975 when
we contracted with OCLC, inc. for cataloging records. We built our
catalog year by year after that. From 1975 until 1986 we converted all
older materials to automated format. In 1987 the library bought
its first automated Library Catalog. We bought VTLS from VTLS, inc. We
used this system until 2004 when we moved to Innovative Interfaces. In fall of 2016, the library began migrating data to OCLC's Worldshare Management Services. We went live with WMS in February 2017.
Some of the things included in the catalog are:
