VuFind Interface to replace the I Share Web Voyage Catalog

On June 1st the I Share Web Voyage Universal Union Catalog will be replaced by the VuFind Library Union Catalog Interface.
VuFind is an alternative interface to the current I-Share catalogs, offering users what may be a better way to search and discover library resources.

Advantages include patron created usernames and passwords to simplify book requests, the ability to set a one hour logout time period, faster connections, links to previews in Google Book search and other social networking tools. Disadvantages include no call number searching, and an inability to limit by library.
