The NMSU Library has launched a new online integrated computer catalog that replaces two of the
Library’s computer systems.
The NMSU Library’s Online Catalog, based on the Voyager system made by Endeavor Information
Systems, Inc., integrates all the Library’s systems into one, making access to library collections easier and
more complete. The system replaces VTLS, the catalog that allowed users to search for books and other
bound publications, and Innopac, the system used to search for periodicals and academic journals.
“The new system has definite advantages over the old systems in terms of technology,” said Holly Reynolds,
circulation coordinator and co-chairperson of the implementation task force. “The main advantage is that
we now have one system instead of two, making it much faster for our users.”
A new online feature included in the catalog lets users log on to the system to see what books they have
checked out and allows them to renew books themselves. Electronic journals and other Web resources will
have hotlinks that users can access from the catalog.
The NMSU Library’s Online Catalog can be accessed at http://libcat.nmsu.edu.
