Getting to Know the New Becker Library Catalog

As we announced last year, Becker Library now shares an integrated catalog with Washington University Libraries. In the new catalog, users can search resources, find links to Becker’s interlibrary loan service, an Ask Us @ Becker button to reach our help deskand a journal-title search, among other tools.

Shared electronic resources records have a WUSM full text and a WUSTL full text link. Be sure to choose the WUSM full text link to route through the Becker Library proxy service.

If you change the drop-down menu to search “All Washington University Libraries” you will get results from Becker Library and the rest of the Washington University Libraries. Note that the links on the page change to the Washington University Libraries services, for example, their interlibrary loan and their AskUs! feature instead of Becker’s.
