New features in the library catalogue

We’ve made some changes to the library catalogue:

1. Clustering

Different editions of the same book are now grouped together, with the most recent edition usually appearing as the main entry. At the moment, there are still separate entries for different formats (i.e. books, ebooks, DVDs) but we hope to get these grouped together soon.

2. Journal holdings

You will now be able to see additional details for print holdings of journals, including volume and issue number. Select the year, and see the most recent issue at the top of the list.

3. Book previews

If a Google book preview is available, these will be shown on the library catalogue entry, containing a small selection of pages.

We hope you find these changes useful. Any comments? Email elibrary@bcu.ac.uk
