WorldCat replacing Summon and Mountainlynx

WorldCat will replace Summon and MountainLynx this spring. The following is our current timeline for the switch:

  • March 7th, 2016 – WorldCat goes live to the public
  • Week of March 21st, 2016 – The Books tab on the WVU Libraries main search box will begin searching WorldCat (instead of MountainLynx)
    • Mountainlynx will not be updated after this date
    • WorldCat becomes the only source for up to date information on location and availability
  • May 16th – 30th, 2016* – The WVU Libraries main search box will begin searching in WorldCat for both physical and electronic materials
  • May 31st, 2016 – Mountainlynx is no longer available to the public

*Exact date TBA

Search WVU collections and the collections of libraries world-wide with WorldCat. WVU books will be listed prominently, but you will also be able to request items from other libraries using EZ-Borrow and ILLiad, all from within WorldCat.
