Stevens Library Catalog Upgrade/Downtime

The Library Catalog (WebCat) will not be available from Thursday, October 18 to Sunday, October 21, 2007, while it undergoes a software update and server migration. During this time, users will not be able to search for or renew books online.

Books can still be checked in and checked out manually at the circulation desk.

Electronic books are still available online through the databases, such as
* knovel Engineering & Scientific Online References
* Engineering Handbooks Online (EngNetBase)
* Referex Engineering e-Books
* Safari Tech Books Online

Users may also check WorldCat to see if the library owns an item; however, this database will not indicate the availability or location of the item (e.g., checked-out, stacks, new books, reference), and it will not give the exact call number. If WorldCat indicates the library owns an item, one way to find the call number would be to check the Library of Congress catalog, since many of our call numbers match the records in this catalog.

We apologize for the inconvenience as we work to improve our library catalog.

Please contact the Library circulation desk at 201-216-5200, or email us at if you have any questions.
