New OPAC to be released on July 1, 2013.

LibraryWorld is excited to announce an enhanced online public access catalog (OPAC) to be released on July 1st to all customers.    

The aim of this upgrade is to make the service’s ‘look and feel’ more consistent with what your patrons may encounter when using online search engines as well as to provide a base for additional features in the future.

We have also added features to this release, including sorting by publication year and a default relevancy search.   The basic structure and use of the service will remain the same so there should be little learning curve necessary.

We understand any change in a busy library setting can cause disruptions if one is not prepared for them.  So we are providing this lead time to make any necessary adjustments.    You will not need to do anything to access the new program. On July 1st, we’ll be upgrading the existing service.

To allow you to see the service before it goes public, we’ve provided this link.    This is only for librarians to review the new user interface and not designed for public access.  

If you have any feedback, please email to:
