New Libraries Added to SUNCAT

SUNCAT, the online catalogue for helping to locate journals, has added new libraries to its search platform. Significantly for GSA Library users, the new additions include the libraries at Strathclyde University, the specialist arts library at Courtauld Institute of Arts and the Scottish National Gallery and Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.

SUNCAT is the brainchild of the national academic data centre EDINA, based at University of Edinburgh. EDINA strive to support the activities of higher education and research institutes across the UK and in line with that vision, are currently redeveloping the SUNCAT search platform. The system's face-lift should mean improvements to the site's current search engine with one key feature being the retrieval of more flexible results, which take location and library into consideration. It is hoped the changes will be ready by this Spring.
