New version of the NLS main catalogue

From Wednesday 2 May we have a new version of the Library's main catalogue, with a fresh new look that includes several new features:

  • You can save searches so you will be able to re-run them again when you want
  • Items you are interested in can be saved to lists
  • Many of the items you find will have an image of the book cover
  • Some of the items have links to Google Books, which offers more information about books such as summaries and reviews.

There are other benefits too:

  • It is easier to refine your search on language, year and collection
  • It is more obvious how to request, print or email details of an item.
