Beginning May 1st, the Encore interface for the library catalog will no longer be available. Any bookmarks made in Encore will stop working on that date and should be replaced with links from the CLICnet Classic version of the catalog, which will be the version of the library catalog that will be available going forward. Remember to check for bookmarks in syllabi, Blackboard courses, Web browsers, and social bookmarking Web-applications.
The decision to discontinue Encore was made at the consortia level, and it enables the CLIC libraries to offer a wider search and discovery experience through OCLC’s WorldCat Local product, which will be implemented over the summer. With a single search interface, WorldCat Local will allow you to search Concordia’s book holdings and article databases simultaneously, with several options to scope your search, including limiting by format and expanding by location.
