Hope You Enjoyed National Library Week!

Every 3rd week in April the American Library Association helps the country celebrate libraries by sponsoring National Library Week (NLW). The theme for this year's NLW celebration was Lives change @ your library. The honorary chair for 2014 was author Judy Blume. At Palomar we celebrated our wonderful users by gathering feedback through our Library Service Survey!

New Library Catalog -- WorldCat

The library is in the process of implementing a new catalog called WorldCat. New features are being added daily, and final implementation is slated to begin on Dec. 19.  As with our previous catalog, you can search for books, DVDs and other items held by the Palomar College Library.  New features will also allow users to search for items owned at regional and national libraries, as well as articles in the library's research databases. Stay tuned for more information on WorldCat as we migrate to this new system.
