No MIDCAT in new library site???

Many researchers are surprised and dismayed that there’s no easy way to get to MIDCAT in the new library site.  There is!!!  If someone can’t find MIDCAT, they’re probably using Internet Explorer version 6.  In IE 6, the “Library Quick Search” portal–with MIDCAT, articles, journals and more–displays at the bottom of the front page rather than at the top.  We tested the new site on multiple browsers, but alas, this issue didn’t become apparent until after launch.  We’ve reported the problem and hope for a resolution soon.

If you can’t find MIDCAT, try scrolling down.  Pass it on!

Cite your work

Submitted by Mike Lynch

A new feature has been added to Midcat.  When viewing the full record of an item you will see a link labeled Cite this title (via OCLC). For most titles, clicking that link will take you to a page at OCLC which will show you the correct format for citing the title in a number of different styles, such as APA, MLA and Turabian.

Oherwise you’ll see a page indicating that citation information may not be available.
