This week we are beginning beta testing of WorldCat Local, a new online interface for searching Boyce Centennial Library’s Catalog. A quick comparison of WorldCat Local with our current OPAC helps visualize some of the changes that are coming.
WorldCat Local delivers many enhancements and new features to our patrons, including:
This is a partial list of new features now available in our beta test of WorldCat Local. In the coming days, I’ll post blog entries overviewing these features with tips on how to get the most from them. In the meantime, we hope you’ll spend some time exploring WorldCat Local (sbts.worldcat.org), and then please send us some feedback (firstname.lastname@example.org) on what you like, what worked, what didn’t (it is a beta, after all!), and what could be added or improved.
Today we published a new page on our website that lists all of our current research databases in alphabetical order. Boyce Centennial Library provides access to well over 50 online, research databases, covering subjects such as theology, medicine, current events, history, and many more. Now it is simple to see all the databases that are available for your use on one page. We trust this addition will make our databases more accessible, and perhaps it will even reveal research resources of which you were previously unaware.
Boyce Centennial Library is pleased to announce the availability of online full text articles from journals published by Cambridge University Press and Oxford Press. Some of the journal titles now available include:
Many other titles are also available. For a list of all the theological titles available, see our Theology and Religion Databases page. We trust the increased availability of these resources will further your studies for the glory of God.
