Try Encore, a New Way to Search the CLAMS Catalog

When you search the CLAMS Catalog you will be invited to try our new  Encore Search.  
Encore

 

What is Encore?
Based on feedback from our users, CLAMS has added an intuitive, yet powerful search option that includes features common to search engines such as Google, commercial web sites, and social networking sites. It is a new way to search for books, DVDs, digital titles, etc. in the CLAMS libraries.  Encore is particularly powerful when you begin with a broad search and want to narrow it down.

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.
