NEW Flaxman Catalog

We are excited to announce a new Flaxman Library catalog and I-Share catalog. The main difference between the old and the new one is that your library account requires a login using your last name and your library barcode, which is the 14-digit barcode on the back of your ARTICard.

Here’s a list of other new features:

  • Easily viewed on a screen of any size with full functionality; available for the Flaxman catalog and the I-Share catalog

  • Log in to Your Account with your library barcode (back of ID) and last name; no username and password necessary

  • APA, MLA, and Chicago Style citation generator; compatible with Zotero

  • A "Similar Items" feature that offers suggestions for resources that are similar to the current resource

  • New features in Your Account to save searches and lists of items

  • Call Number searching and browsing

Check out this side by side comparison of the old catalog vs. the new catalog:
