Check Out Our Catalog's New Look

Author: 

As I’m sure you all have noticed, the law library catalog has recently gotten a facelift.  On display is the new, sleeker Primo.  Now with less tabs!

All the content you’ve come to expect from our catalog is still there, just repacked to make sure you get the most out of our library’s resources, including from your mobile devices!

Click on the links above the search bar to: obtain results by subject (Browse), be directed to all of our research guides arranged by subject (Research Guides), or search an A-Z list of the databases in our catalog (A-Z List).  New Search will bring you back to the catalog homepage.  Don’t forget to click on the Ask a librarian link below the search bar to contact us!

By default, the search bar will search across all the content we have available to us at the library.  Start typing in the bar and it will give you the option to search for specific types of resources and a list of suggested search terms.  You can also specify what type of resource you are looking for by clicking on the downward facing triangle to the left of the magnifying glass.

Results present in much the same way, with facets available on the left hand side to narrow results, but now you don’t need to click as many times to get what you need.  Click on the Full text available link to pop out to the electronic resource directly; click on the title itself to find all the information you need about the resource.  Information about availability and location in the library are right there on the screen.
