What is the difference between QCat Library Catalogue and QCat Classic?
Answered By: Geraldine O'Beirn Last Updated: Sep 14, 2014 Views: 50
QCat Library Catalogue and QCat Classic are two different interfaces for the same catalogue (they both search the same information). The major difference between the two interfaces is that QCat Library Catalogue offers more sophisticated ways of limiting or narrowing your search results (these are shown on the left hand side of your results). The library recommends using QCat Library Catalogue rather than QCat Classic.
We continue to make QCat Classic available because some library users prefer it to the newer version. For technical reasons it continues to be the version available on the public catalogue PCs.
Please be aware that neither QCat Library Catalogue nor QCat Classic can find individual articles, to find these you should use the Article Search tab on the QUB Library Homepage. If you would like more advice on using QCat Library Catalogue or QCat Classic please contact your Subject Librarian.
