Introducing Iluminar!

8/18/2009 NOTE: You don't need a library account to use Iluminar, but you do need one to set up lists, check your renewals and holds, etc. Call us with current contact info, and we'll set up you as a library user!

WHAT IS IT?
"Iluminar" is the new Butler library catalog which offers some
wonderful features we think students will love - and you, too! It uses
technology similar to itunes, so it is familiar and friendly for the
younger students, and fun for all.

HOW DO YOU GET TO IT?
You know where to find us - on the Library Tab in Pipeline. Click on
Library Catalog (if you see the old Bearcat, please refresh your page).
The catalog's fresh appearance includes:
book covers,
central search through the databases (click on Advanced
Search),
the library calendar,
Hours/Contact info - look here for library classroom bookings,
new books and DVDs and the,
Livelibrary blog.
Optionally,create a login to access special features, including
creating a book list, reserve new books or renewing your items out, and
writing book reviews to be read by other catalog users.

HOW DO I CREATE MY ACCOUNT?
Use your Butler ID number as your login. (If you don't have it with
you - go to Pipeline, then ID lookup for the number starting with the
@sign.) Create a password - first time type the word USERPASS. Then
pick your own.
