We have recently added some enhancements to EUCLID and more are coming both to EUCLID and DiscoverE.
You can now virtually browse our bookshelves from the EUCLID interface. When viewing a full record in EUCLID, select the ‘browse items on shelf’ link next to item’s call number to retrieve a list of resources within that call number range, sorted as they would be on our bookshelves. Example.
EUCLID records contain a new link ‘Browse book in Google,” which will search Google Books either by ISBN or title. Search results often contain additional information about a particular title such as tables of contents, reviews, excerpts and in some cases full text access.
- If there is an exact ISBN match, Google will pull up the book record for that item. Example.
- If there is no match, a title search is performed in Google Books. Example.
Items slated for storage are being analyzed to see if there is electronic access to all or part of the resource available. If an item has electronic access to tables of contents, a link will be provided to a pdf with tables of contents for each volume. Example.
Multi-volume sets with full-text availability from the HathiTrust Digital Library are being updated in EUCLID. Links to full-text electronic versions of the resource are being added to our catalog records. Example.
