The New CBBcat!
Colby, Bates and Bowdoin (CBB) libraries just launched a new, merged catalog of all our holdings – http://cbbcat.net
– retaining many of the best features of the previous CBBcat and our local Bates catalog, both of which are now retired.
New CBBcat features include:
- Combined CBB holdings with option to limit to a single library
- Ability to virtually browse the “shelves” of the CBB collections
- Request material from Bowdoin or Colby by using “CBB request” and not by repeating the search in NExpress or MaineCat
- Extended loan periods for faculty and students from all three schools
- Single reserve system for all three libraries with easy institution-distinguishing labels
- Requests for Offsite books made through the “CBB request” on the header of each record
