Description & Detail View Updates – Coming Soon!

We’ll be launching updated views for our catalog search and book details pages this Summer. After a patron or student searches for a title in your catalog, the new results list will be greatly refined. Each title will feature an image of the cover (when available), and fewer details which allows your patrons to easily determine the title of the item and the format. After an item is selected from the search results, the new item details page provides only the basics – title, author, published year and a summary of the item. The place a hold button is more prominent, and if you’re looking for more information about the item, you can always choose the full details option.
