Noticed a change on our homepage?
The Dalhousie Libraries have acquired WorldCat Local, a new discovery tool which provides expanded Web access to local, regional and worldwide library resources. When you do a search, items available at Dal are shown at the top of the search results, followed by items held in Novanet Libraries, Atlantic University Libraries and finally libraries around the world.
WorldCat Local provides a single interface for searching books, articles, digital items and other materials, as well as document delivery options. Other attractive features include relevancy ranking, book cover images, downloading digital content, and the ability create lists, RSS feeds, saved searches and more. Plus you can use it on your handheld!
Please note that WorldCat Local is an enhancement to Novanet, which will continue to be used for patron account functions, placing holds, Novanet Express, and Reserves.
We’re beta testing this exciting new tool and welcome your feedback on it. Please give it a try at www.library.dal.ca and let us know what you think!
