Emma Waters Summar Library provides access to WorldCat.org ("world catalog"), the world's largest network of library-based content and services, through Online Computer Library Center (OCLC).
At this time, some content cannot be fully accessed in WorldCat when using Internet Explorer 10 (some computers on campus have been updated with IE10 already).
If you are using IE10 to search the library's catalog for a resource you need, you will not be able to 1) access information regarding that resource's availability or 2) open the full record for that resource.
If you primarily use IE10 as your favored web browser, here's what to do:
OCLC officials advise using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome until Thursday (May 17), when a tentative fix for Internet Explorer 10 is scheduled.
If you have any questions, feel free to call the library's circulation desk at 661-6573.
