Many library functions will begin to come online on July 7th, and we hope to have all library functionality restored and HamCAT fully operational by mid-July.
Hamline is now fully part of the MnPALS Consortium.
Bush Memorial Library book stacks are once again open for public browsing. We require you keep your mask on and ask that you wash or sanitize your hands before browsing. Please don't reshelve items, instead set them on a bookcart so we can keep more accurate usage.
Leganto is back and faculty can again create and edit Reading Lists. A reminder to submit your lists to the library for processing and link checking early for Fall Semester for best service.
CLIC search has been replaced by HamCAT. It's a similar system except "partner libraries" now include numerous MnPALS Consortium Libraries collections including Bemidji State University, Minnesota State University, Mankato, St. Cloud State, vintage CLIC libraries, and other 4 year academic Minnesota institution libraries.
You can search all MnPALS Libraries collections including Hamline by clicking the drop down on the search
The system can now display 10, 25 or 50 results per page depending upon the user settings. After entering a search, scroll down to the near the bottom of the page to adjust "Results Per Page":
Some users find it helpful to have two different browsers, one of which is used for the personal Google account and the other used for their Hamline Google account.
Atlases are showing up incorrectly as type MAPS.
EBOOK vs. BOOK: occasionally the system misidentifies whether a book is electronic or not. If you need help identifying the definite format, please contact a librarian.
HamCAT is a catalog of most of Hamline's library resources, but not all. For example, MLA Bibliography records cannot be rendered discoverable in HamCAT. Instead, one needs to search EBSCO directly.
Other sources NOT found in HamCAT:
To use the Leganto Send to button when viewing a full record in HamCAT, you must first sign into HamCAT using your full Hamline email address. If you choose to send the citation(s) to a list, note that your reading list and section must previously have been created in Leganto. You can sign in to Leganto directly here or go through Canvas to edit your Reading List(s). After clicking Add to Reading List button, the screen will flash briefly but currently there is no notification that the send to function worked. Go into Leganto to check your reading list has been updated with the new additional citation.
Note that the "Send to Leganto" reading list functionality is only available for faculty and staff users.
