Mobile Aleph Now Available

Everyone

The OLIS is pleased to announce a mobile-enhanced version of the Aleph catalog. The mobile catalog offers basic and advanced searching, links to e-books and e-resources in 856 fields, links to Google Books, and the ability to email single titles. The mobile catalog offers a clean, uncluttered look and feel.

Each campus now has a mobile catalog in place on both the /dev and /prod sides.

Natalie Sturr, Coordinator of Library Technology at SUNY Oswego, developed the mobile catalog for her campus and has graciously agreed to share her work. The OLIS is pleased to make Natalie’s version of the mobile Aleph catalog available to all campuses on the shared servers.

The mobile catalog is designed to run in conjunction with existing campus OPAC files, and builds on work done by Laura Murray of the OLIS. Like the standard OPAC, file content is standardized to reduce long-term maintenance.
