Newcat+ new features

5 April, 2016

NewCat+ now has 3 choices  to help you refine your search before you start.

  • Search All (search both the library catalogue and the databases) – default search.
  • Books (search the library catalogue)
  • Journal Articles (search key library databases,).


Another new feature is the link to Inter Library Loans so you can request an item if the library doesn’t subscribe to the full text.


Try the  Browse nearby call numbers feature to find similar items.  Click on the item call number to view nearby items by call number. Newcat+ provides a pop-up display with:

  • a graphical browse or
  • list browse.

Use the arrow keys to navigate through the browse results.
