Upgrading to WorldCat Discovery in January 2018

WorldCat Discovery Logo

#SHU_Libraries  is pleased to announce that we have now completed the upgrade of our current book search platform (called Worldcat Local) to OCLC’s WorldCat Discovery!

WorldCat Discovery will help you easily find resources available @ SHU Libraries, and in libraries worldwide through a single search of WorldCat collections!

New features include:

  • improved reliability.
  • an updated, mobile-ready user interface.
  • improved searching parameters.
  • advanced search screen displays the most-used searchable fields.
  • multiple search options.

To try out our new WorldCat Discovery now, go to https://setonhall.on.worldcat.org

In January, find it under the Book tab on the library home page https://library.shu.edu/library
