Summit and the new Reed catalog (WorldCat Local) will be unavailable from 11pm on Saturday 9/12 to 3am on Sunday 9/13 while maintenance is performed. We apologize for any inconvenience. If you need to search the Reed catalog during this time, please use the Reed-only catalog.
WorldCat Local is now the default library catalog at Reed. This means that you can search library holdings for Reed, Summit and Worldcat simultaneously and request materials from other libraries right from the catalog.
WorldCat Local provides a different search experience than you might be used to with our existing catalog.
New features include:
- Citations to journal articles
- Faceted browsing, which enables you to limit your search by format, author, date of publication, etc.
- Cover art and previews of content
- Reviews and ratings
- Citation formatting or downloading to EndNote
Questions or comments about the new catalog and its features? Get help via email, IM, or phone or drop by to let us know what you think or to get help.
Where is the Reed-only catalog?
Never fear, fans of the Reed-only catalog! The catalog is still here and is still available for searching. In fact, you should use the Reed-only catalog if youâ€™re looking for materials that are on order, or for certain kinds of materials with common or nondistinctive words in their titles, such as music or journal titles.
Can I still use Summit and WorldCat?
Yes, the old versions of Summit and WorldCat are still available too, if you prefer to begin your search there.
