If you use our online catalog much to find materials in the library, you might know that our catalog can display search results for not only Winthrop’s library materials but other libraries’ materials as well (libraries worldwide). Up until recently, the quick catalog search (the search box on the library’s homepage) would, by default, search libraries worldwide. But we’ve recently changed a setting that now makes Winthrop University the default when you do a search (just make sure you clear your browser history/cache to see this change). This now matches the default setting for the Advanced Search to return results just for Winthrop’s materials. However, there is always the option to change the location filter from Winthrop University to Libraries Worldwide (there’s a PASCAL Delivers option too). The filters display on the Advanced Search page and they display on the left side of the search results page.
If you have any questions about this or would like more information on how to search the catalog, please don’t hesitate to contact the Reference Desk at 803/323-4501.
