A New Catalog in Town

Share this post:

The following is a guest post by Donna Scanlon, Electronic Resources Coordinator in our Collections and Services Directorate.  (Donna used to contribute to “Inside Adams,” the blog of the Science, Technology and Business Division):

If you have been in any of the Library of Congress reading rooms lately you may have had an opportunity to try the BETA version of our new Electronic Resources Online Catalog – if not, then starting today you can access this catalog from wherever you happen to be!

With this catalog you can browse our databases alphabetically or by subject area.  You can search for journals and see the coverage and which of our subscription resources have the title.  There are a number of freely accessible websites recommended by staff and a selection of e-books both subscription and free public access.

While free public access resources are available anywhere, our subscription resources are only available on-site here at the Library within one of our reading rooms.

We welcome your feedback and suggestions on our new catalog.  You will find a “Send us Feedback” link on each page.  If you would like to visit us in person, there are a number of other resources for researchers and tips to help you prepare for your visit on our Research & Reference Services page.

We invite you to explore the new catalog and let us know what you think!

  1. I was fortunate to have worked in cataloging at a public library which used LC call numbers. Now that I am retired and have relocated to my original hometown, I am stuck using a public library system which does not use the (to me) more user-friendly LC system. Thank you for making this wonderful resource available online.

  2. I feel this could, at times, be a valuable resource in my profession and in my personal pursuits.
