VuFind

The Harper Library is pleased to introduce VuFind!  What’s VuFind? It is a new interface for the Library’s catalog. With VuFind you can search for books, DVDs, CDs, music scores and in the Harper Library.

VuFind can also be used to search for materials in I-Share, a 76 library cooperative group in Illinois.  VuFind can also be to request materials from other libraries, renew books, and monitor you library account.

VuFind is a more modern interface, similar to sites like Amazon or Google.  Advanced features require a free account.  Two brief tutorials are available below.  Feel free to contact the Library Reference Desk with any questions.
