Electronic Resource & Database Access

There will be no off-campus access to Library electronic resources and databases this Friday, November 28 from 6-10pm. Library buildings are also closed for the Thanksgiving holiday during that time.

The Online Catalog Just Got Richer

book cover mosaicBook search results in the UCSB Library Catalog (http://pegasus.library.ucsb.edu/) are now being delivered along with cover images, tables of contents, reviews from The New York Times, and other enriched descriptive data. By having access to detailed information within the online catalog, Library users can make more informed decisions before visiting the Library to obtain a book or to request a title from one of our off-site annexes. The enhanced catalog should be especially useful while the main building is under construction. This new catalog add-on product is being implemented in response to last summer’s Library Collections Space Planning Survey of faculty and graduate students and as part of our ongoing efforts to provide the best possible information discovery experience for the UCSB community. Please note that not every title will contain the additional features.
