A New Online Catalog

A photo of Dinand Library and folio future of libraries is open written above the photo.

Holy Cross Libraries have launched a new online catalog! We are now using FOLIO (The Future of Libraries is Open), an open-source library services platform developed collaboratively by libraries, developers, and vendors. FOLIO brings a modern approach to library systems and will allow the Libraries to leverage the latest technology and standards.

On the front end, the library has replaced its legacy “Classic Catalog” with a more modern interface with many features that are similar to CrossSearch. CrossSearch will not be changing and remains the broadest search of library materials indexing most of what the library has access to, while the new Library Catalog will serve as the place to perform searches of the library’s physical collection, and a selection of electronic resources, mainly ebooks, and streaming media.

The Libraries are excited to provide these new research tools to the Holy Cross community and hope you will have a more productive research experience.
