Library Catalog Update on the Horizon

An update as of January 24, 2007: As previously announced, the Temple University libraries plan to launch an updated, improved interface to Diamond, the Libraries’ online catalog, this year. Our original timetable called for the update to launch in January, prior to the Spring Semester. We have delayed that launch in order to take advantage of system enhancements (including improved sorting of search results) incorporated in a new release of the software that powers the online catalog. This new release is now promised to us in February, so our timetable has changed. Please watch for announcements in March of a public preview of the new catalog — allowing you to try the new interface with current data and suggest any final changes. We now anticipate the final launch to occur after the end of the semester in May. Byron C. Mayes Head, Library Systems and Technology

  1. Hi Peter,
    RSS feeds should be appearing at some point during the spring semester. Tagging is not currently offered by our vendor.
    For the most part this update is about the interface more so than any large changes in features.
