You may be wondering why there is a single search box on the library website’s new home page, and where the old catalog went. On June 30, NCNM Library’s online catalog underwent a complete makeover as we transitioned to a new library management system.
Catalogs are constantly evolving as library collections diversify and encompass increasing amounts of electronic materials. We made this change along with our Portland Academic Health Libraries (PAHL) sister libraries: Oregon Health & Science University, University of Western States, and Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. This change represents a move to the next generation of library catalogs which, in turn, moves us closer to the goal of providing you with the easiest possible access to print, electronic and digital resources. With all of the PAHL schools joining together in this shared project, we maintain our ability to share resources seamlessly.
