BobCat beta - a new, streamlined way to access and search library resources

BobCat beta is our next generation library tool. It integrates many of the diverse library systems we offer into one unified interface, while providing predictable and seamless functionality across these tools. BobCat beta integrates access to the following:

* Our article-searching databases - access categorized databases and search across selected databases

* Our e-journal title / article finder tool - quickly find e-access to an item by entering citation information

* Our course reserves system - find materials placed on reserve by NYU faculty

* A unified "e-shelf" - save all the records you find - be they records for books or articles - in one convenient list, and quickly access your library account
