New Library Catalog

We've switched to a brand new online catalog.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to improve your catalog experience. As you may have noticed, some services are experiencing intermittent issues as we continue to optimize the new system. Be assured that librarians and IT professionals are working diligently to correct any issues that arise. Feel free to let us know when you experience a problem. Please contact us for the most up-to-date catalog access news or to discuss your library account. We greatly appreciate the patience of our patrons during this time of transition, and apologize for any inconvenience that you may experience.
