Center For Research Libraries Catalogue Upgrade

Remember David's note that CRL searches can be extended directly from the catalogue.

Now online is a newly designed catalog of CRL collections. The catalog is powered by Innovative’s WebOPAC pro software. New features include:

- English and French dual-language interfaces
-Scoped searches within individual collections, such as dissertation, newspaper, serial and electronic resources
- The e-resources scope covers 4,000-plus full text online titles which are available through the catalog to CRL member institutions.
- Improved relevancy ranking logic in search results display

In addition to standard search capabilities, unique browsing functions have been built to enhance discovery of CRL resources:
- Browsing by country and awarding institution in the dissertation scope
- Browsing by country and U.S. State in the newspaper scope
