Tell us what you think about MIT’s WorldCat!

Posted February 27th, 2009 by Remlee Green

There’s been a new beta in town: MIT’s WorldCat – and we need your feedback!   It will only take a few minutes, and it’s for a good cause. Take the survey now.

MIT’s WorldCat is an experimental interface to the Barton catalog. It offers an easy way to find books and journals owned not only by MIT, but also by other libraries around the world.

Other features include:

  • easy browsing capabilities, with images of book covers and many Google book previews
  • option to set up a user profile, so you can save your favorite items to sharable lists
  • ability to tag, rate, and review items

To find out more the interface, visit MIT’s WorldCat: About this Beta.

WorldCat doesn’t include everything owned by the MIT Libraries, so if you can’t find what you’re looking for, make sure to check Barton and Vera, or ask us!

Want to give us feedback, but don’t want to take the survey? Email us.
