In the bar at the top of the Library home page, you'll see a link to this tool alongside the link to the "Classic Catalog," which is the library catalog interface you're accustomed to. CatQuest is also found on the Library's home page, as the search box at the top right of the screen.
The Library Catalog and the individual databases are not going to disappear. You will continue to have access to these resources in the traditional way. This is important, because CatQuest does not provide searchable access to many of the resources you frequently search for and expect to locate. For example, CatQuest will locate journal articles that are found in MLA International Bibliography, but not books or book chapters.
While you are working on your own research or preparing for your courses, I invite you to "kick the tires" by replicating your favorite searches in this tool and comparing the search results with the ones from your frequently used databases. Your feedback about functionality as well as content continues to be very important. Feel free to call or e-mail me. I would also be happy to answer-or get an answer to-any questions you might have. If you would like some one-on-one help with this tool, please let me know and we will set up an appointment. If several of you would like a group introduction, I'd be happy to do that as well.
