Funky library search results?

The library has partnered with our vendor to test changes in the way our WorldCat Discovery results display. If you see search results that look unusual to you, you can use the "sort by" box in the upper left corner to select "Library and Relevance." This will sort your search results in the "regular" way. If you have questions or are having trouble finding an item, please contact us.
