Improved CCGS Library Catalog now online

A new version of the CCGS Library Catalog is now online with added features and a new look.

The new online catalog contains over 400 books listed by categories that include biographies and genealogies, research guides, histories of Massachusetts towns, Mayflower, and various records. The catalog also lists the holdings in the Archives and Manuscripts section, which include unpublished materials on Cape Cod cemeteries and family histories

New features for the visitor include the ability to search just the catalog; sort listings by author, title, or call number; and to print the listing on your local printer. According to CCGS Librarian Betsy Ferris, "the biggest benefit is that you can search the catalog for any word that's in there."

For the library staff one of the best features is the ease with which new listings can be entered into the catalog. "It's so easy to update, that as soon as I have a book on the shelf, it's also in the online catalog," says Betsy.

Visitors can access the new Library Catalog online at http://library.capecodgensoc.org/, or from a link on the CCGS main site at http://blog.capecodgensoc.org/.

The Cape Cod Genealogical Society's Genealogy Room is located in the Dennis Public Library, 5 Hall Street, Dennis Port, MA. Hours are: Tuesday 12 - 4; Wednesday 1 - 3; Thursday 10 - 4; Friday 10 - 2; Saturday 10 - Noon.
