Try the new version of the PrairieCat catalog! Some neat things about it:
- Have you ever thought you’d like to write your own review of a book you loved (or hated) and have it appear in the catalog? Well, now you can (Look at the Community Reviews for The Thing About Jane Spring). That Minniemutt has such good taste in literature.
- You can also rate an item (1 star = I Hate It and 5 stars = I Love it)
- You can add the tag “travel book” to make it easier for other users unfamiliar with official library subject headings. You can add adjectives, such as “grunge” for a Pearl Jam CD or physically descriptive, such as “yellow cover!”
- You can register for a My Discoveries account; this is a great way to keep track of your reading lists or things you want to put on hold. (I have a list of dvds I don’t have time to watch right now, but don’t want to forget about them!)
- The new catalog is more intuitive, faster, with more relevant search results, but the old or Classic Catalog is still available as a tab.
Edited: We’ve had to postpone our launch of the new catalog until tomorrow, March 31. It’ll be worth the wait, I promise!
One thought on “Our New and Improved Catalog is Here!”
I’m using “My Discoveries” to make lists of books I’ve read. Then, if I need a refresher of what a book was about, I can just click on the title and go directly to the description. Cool!
