The current interface (powered by Endeca) was selected as part of a collaborative initiative with our Triangle Research Libraries Network (TRLN) peers: UNC-Chapel Hill, NC State, and NC Central. The shared use of Endeca by TRLN combines development efforts and facilitates the discovery, request, and delivery of library materials to students, faculty, and staff members between and within the four universities. The TRLN effort builds on the work of the NC State Libraries, which have been using Endeca successfully since 2005.
Here are the fundamental differences between the current and classic catalog interfaces.
See a full comparison of features to learn more about how the current catalog interface differs from the old (classic) interface, and learn new strategies for finding items.
No single interface will ever fully meet all of the information needs of all of the library's patrons. Beyond the current and classic catalog interfaces, you may also search and discover the resources in our catalog by using sites such as WorldCat or Search TRLN. For articles, you may prefer using Google Scholar or searching within one of our more than 500 databases' native interfaces. Functionality and scope differs in every system. Ask a librarian for guidance in finding the right system for your needs.
