The University of California Libraries are moving to a new stage in evaluating the Next Generation Melvyl Pilot catalog system.
Beginning Wednesday, August 19, the Next Generation Melvyl Pilot will be the only UC-wide catalog linked from the Library's homepage and some other pages. This is intended to encourage people to try it, and also to provide an accurate test of its performance under real-world, full-load conditions.
The current version of Melvyl will still be available, and you may wish to bookmark it using this link.
The Water Resources Center Archives will be closed all day on Monday, August 10 for a staff retreat.
An OskiCat import filter is available for EndNote users. Download the new filter as an update at the EndNote website, under the name "University of California-Berkeley Library Catalog".
A connection filter that allows you to search OskiCat from within EndNote is not currently available but is in the works. Check back soon - we will be posting more information when it is ready!
