The Westminster Law Library catalog has been undergoing some upgrades. Much of what you see looks the same, but there are several new features. The most important difference is how authentication is done when you log into your patron record or use the proxy server for off-campus access to databases. All students, faculty and staff will now need to log in using their DU ID and passcode. The passcode is the password that you set up to use when logging into DU’s WebCentral system. Law firms, law alumni and other card holders will continue to log in the old way with their name and library barcode.
Some other changes are not as noticeable. You can now view your search history and run previous searches or searches that you have saved as “Preferred”. You can set up your account preferences so that you receive notices from the library via email or postal mail. You can also create lists of records, save them and view them later.
More changes are coming in the months ahead as we provide an additional search interface called Summon which allows for faceted search results. Stay tuned for details!
