Encore is now the primary CLAMS Catalog

The Encore catalog was launched in 2016 and, starting on March 6th, will become the primary search method for CLAMS.

What is Encore?
Encore is a new way to search for books, DVDs, digital titles, etc. in CLAMS libraries. Encore is particularly powerful when you begin with a broad search and want to narrow it down. The tools in Encore provide multiple ways to refine a given search and include features common to search engines such as Google, commercial web sites, and social networking sites.

Encore integrates the patron’s OverDrive eBook checkouts and holds into “My Account” and allows access to articles from Gale General OneFile, an online reference resource provided through the state.
For more details please visit out Help Page.

The “Classic” catalog is still available as an optional catalog search.
