Catalog Down Today
On Monday, June 17th, the Library will be upgrading its server. The upgrade will take most of the day due to the amount of information that needs to be transferred. During this time the Library catalog will be offline. If you need assistance in locating materials please come speak with a Librarian or contact the Reference Desk (680-7612). Our circulation system will also be down during this time; however we will still be able to check materials in and out. We just ask for your patience as the process may take longer than usual.
Thank you for your understanding as we work to improve on the services we provide to the Florida Coastal community.
By now, most of you have probably used Encore – our library’s catalog. More efficient (though no less magical) than the card catalogs of old, Encore allows you to see all the library resources you have access to as a member of the Coastal Community.
But what about when you are off site? Maybe you want to do some light ConLaw reading over holiday break? Or maybe that last minute preparation for Moot Court oral argument has to be done out of town?
Fear not, just as Encore is a catalog that shows you what we have here at Coastal, WorldCat.org is a catalog that can show you what is available wherever you are around the world.
Simply type in your preferred search using title/author/keyword terms and then you can narrow by facets on the left, similar to Encore. Once you locate a particular record, you can see which libraries hold that resource and how far they are from your location.
Take Legal Research in a Nutshell, for example, since we all know how important it is to keep your legal research skills sharp.The WorldCat.org record for this resource can he found here. Follow that link and you’ll have the chance to Enter your location – zip code, city/state (or province), or country.
Enter 32256, for example, and you’ll see that the closest library to hold that resource is… the Florida Coastal School of Law Library & Technology Center! What library closest to you has it?
