Watch a video introduction
At the Walker Library today we are partying like it is our birthday. You might even see a few of us doing the electric slide, the lawnmower or raising the roof in the atrium. We are that excited. What could make librarians bust a move in the middle of the day? InfoSearch is live!
The Walker Library has converted to a new integrated library system and catalog. This new system replaces Voyager. InfoSearch offers MTSU faculty and students a quick and intuitive search interface to the combined catalogs of Walker Library, the Center for Popular Music, the Instructional Media Resource Center and the Howard Music Library.
What does this mean for you? Bottom line, it makes it easier to find books and articles and other resources. InfoSearch has:
- A Google-like search
- Spell check
- “Did you mean” help
- Ability to search by tag
- Advanced search options
- Users can rate resources
- Recently added materials suggestions
- Book cover art
- Table of contents
- Content summary
Want to see what its all about? Try InfoSearch now and you may find yourself striking up a conga line with the strangers at the table next to you.
