Introducing the New JumpStart & Library Catalog

The library moved to a new integrated cataloging/management system in mid-June 2019. This system includes a new user interface for the Library Catalog, JumpStart, and the Journals & Newspapers list.  This new system will allow you to:

  • Manage your library account and renew items using your Dickinson network login
  • Save favorite items and searches in JumpStart and the library catalog to your library account for future reference
  • View full text online access options from within search results
  • Access interlibrary loan options from within catalog and JumpStart item views.

As always, you will be able to:

  • Search the library catalog to find books, ebooks, and films owned by the library
  • Search Jumpstart to find items in the library catalog, as well as information sources found in many of our library databases
  • Search the journals & newspapers list to see if we have access to a specific title.
