New Library Catalog Interface

June 22, 2010

Starting today, June 22nd, Dahlgren Memorial Library is linking to a new Library Catalog interface. This enhanced interface combines GEORGE and the Washington Research Library Consortium Catalog (The WRLC is a group of DC area academic libraries where you can get free books and articles). Some of the new features:

  • Easily request books from Georgetown libraries and other consortium libraries
  • Use the tag cloud to find additional related resources
  • Quickly export a single citation or several selected citations to a bibliographic manager such as RefWorks
  • Send and share book information to your mobile phone, Twitter, and delicious.
