MNCAT Plus is a new interface to the libraries' catalog which offers new features such as:

* Google-style searching. Simply type a search term or two and click “Go.?
* Relevant results. The items that best match your search terms will rise to the top of your results list.
* Powerful filters. Start with a broad search and refine your results with the links on the right-hand side of the screen.
* Real-time availability information. See at a glance whether materials are available online or at one of our libraries.
* Familiar functions. Features like Did You Mean? suggestions and links to Google Books and WorldCat make it easier for you to find what you need. When available, cover images of books will be displayed.
* Social networking features. Reviews and tagging allow you to make your own contributions to the experience of others.
* Save and gather your citations. Push citations for materials you want to use or share to RefWorks and del.icio.us.
* Integrated access and delivery. Search MNCAT Plus and then move directly to online versions of items or request delivery of physical items with the “Get It? link.
