The Mount Vernon Genealogical Society library catalog has now been posted to the website as a fully functional interactive on-line application. The cataloging system software in the Research Center was no longer supported by the developer.
You now have access to all the information in our library holdings from anywhere you have internet connectivity. A number of features, not found in the index system previously online, are now available to members and the public.
- Searches by “Subject”, “Location” and “Media Type” can now be made on almost 2800 holdings in the library.
- Further searches can then be done on “Title”, “Author” and “Call Number”.
- We are now linking our book reviews to the description field of each book that has been reviewed - click on the “eye” icon to see all information about the book.
- Once the desired list of records is found they can be “printed” to a PDF document by clicking on the “PDF List” icon. Additionally,
The library catalog will always be current now because library accessions are available for viewing as soon as they are put into the online system. Previously the indexes were only updated periodically.
This additional Society benefit would never have been possible without the hard work of volunteers who planned and executed the library database conversion; thank you Jeanne Wilson, Anne Barber, and Gerry Ward and our volunteers who write our book reviews.
