In early August, the library’s default online book catalog was changed from the WestCat catalog that many of you have been familiar with to a newly developed catalog. The new catalog was designed to be a little easier for students to use but still provides access to all of the library’s book and video records.
All previous links to WestCat on the Main page of the Library homepage (www.wmich.edu/library ) have been removed and replaced with the link to the new online catalog. A link to the WestCat catalog is located on the main page however, for those of you who wish to continue using WestCat. This button is entitled “Classic” and is located next to the “New Catalog” button in the quick search box on the Main Page.
The “Catalog” link (in white) at the very top of the Library homepage now points toward the new catalog. The new catalog also now has a link to the “Classic Catalog” within it.
You can access the new catalog at the following URL: https://catalog.library.wmich.edu/vufind/
WestCat will continue to be available at the following URL:
https://www.library.wmich.edu/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?DB=local&PAGE=First but may be phased out early in the 2010-2011 academic year.
