Question

Q: How is the new catalog interface different from the old one?

Answer

While maintaining the main functionalities of the previous GIL-Find version, the new GIL-Find interface offers additional features which are beneficial to the users:

  1. KSU community users can log into their library account using their NetID and password. PIN numbers are no longer needed for logins.
  2. You can access the KSU library catalog and the University System of Georgia catalog (previously GIL Universal Catalog, or UC) at the same site. Using the new GIL-Find, users can type search term(s) and select the catalog from the drop-down menu instead of going to a different website.
  3. The new GIL-Find will allow users to search all e-books and e-journals the library system purchased or subscribes to.
  4. All book requests, such as intercampus requests, repository requests, and Gil Express requests, will use the same form and be submitted the same way.
  5. Mobile interface and functions are improved.

The following are some features which both new and old versions of GIL-Find support:

  1. Faceted search (by location, format, topic, language, etc.)
  2. Shows similar items
