New Catalog Feature

Our online catalog now includes Google Preview in each book record. If you haven’t checked out Google Preview, it’s worth a look. Students can read portions of a book, read reviews others have written and write their own, and rate a book on a 5-star system. Google Preview will also show students related books, biographic information about the author, and links from Google Scholar.
