New Library Search & Catalog

After more than 20 years, the Dartmouth Library catalog system has been replaced with an integrated search, catalog, and account management system, effective June 12, 2019.

We are excited to bring this platform to the Dartmouth Community and look forward to refining it as you explore its features and provide feedback over the coming months.

What Looks Different?

  • The library home page has a new search box with a slightly different appearance and set of search options.
  • A search for keywords, books, articles, and audio/video materials on the Library home page takes you directly to results in the new system, and provides facets (or filters) to narrow your search.
  • The detailed information page about each item has a different format, but still includes information about availability, location, and related items. It also includes citation links, sharing options, and, for local physical items, a virtual shelf browser for nearby items.

We encourage you to email us or use the online form to send us any questions you may have. You can also contact your subject librarian with any questions, or to arrange for course instruction on the new system for your students.

We'll be posting project updates on this site and our social media accounts.
