New Homer Upgrade

The Libraries’ Catalog HOMER has a new look that is more colorful and easier to navigate.  We’ve eliminated library lingo, added links to book covers and descriptions, and also included a feature that  provides you with a warning before you are timed out.  Your favorite features were left intact, allowing you various search strategies, direct links to Intercampus Express/Interlibrary Loans and Course Reserves, ability to renew books online, and more.

Take a look at our new upgraded page and send along any comments or suggestions, since we’re always looking for ways to make the catalog friendlier.
