Vega Discovery Library Catalog Interface: Home

Vega is an update to the traditional online library catalog used for searching books, movies, electronic materials, and other library materials. This libguide explores the new catalog's features and changes from the traditional online library catalog.

New Catalog Home Page

The new catalog's home page looks different from the classic catalog. It is predominantly a search bar with tabs above that link to other popular destinations. Enter a keyword, title, author, or phrase to begin. Click on the Log in icon on the top right side to log into your account with your library card number and pin. Click on the home icon for library information. 

Search Results - Faster and Easier to Find What You Need

The new catalog offers improved search results by rolling up all book copies into one result. Physical books, audiobooks, eBooks, and eAudio books are all displayed in one result with availability visible. Click on the desired material type to find a copy. 

Series - All of Titles in One Place

When searching for a title that is part of a series, the other series titles appear after selecting the book record. In this example, Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins was selected. The new catalog shows more books in the series.
