New Catalogue in December

A new Catalogue will be launched in December which will replace the Catalogue and Full Catalogue.

The timeframe has been revised (the original intention being to launch in November) in order to make further adjustments to the new Catalogue.

We would like to notify current users of the Library that there will be some changes that may affect their use of the Catalogue and require further action.

User history

Your ‘history’ as a user, which is the record of your past requests, will not be transferred to the new Catalogue.

If you wish to retain some of the information in your current ‘History’, you will need to make a copy before the new Catalogue is launched.

Specific searches

When using the new Catalogue, users will only be able to limit their searches to ‘Digital’, ‘Subscriptions’ and ‘In the Library’. These are defined as follows:

Everything: Search NLW collections and subscribed external digital content

Digital: Search NLW digital collections and subscribed external digital content

Subscriptions: Search only subscribed external content

In the Library: Search only NLW collections

Once you have entered your search, you will be able to filter those results using the facets which appear on the left-hand side of the page.

If you wish to limit your search to specific collections or datasets that were available in the old Catalogue, you will need to begin your search from the following pages:

Wills (Page will be made available with the new Catalogue)

Welsh Ballad Collection (Page will be made available with the new Catalogue)

Theses Collection Wales (Page will be made available with the new Catalogue)

There is also a full list of Resources available on the Library’s website.

We hope that will find that the new Catalogue is an improvement and that you will soon become familiar with it.

We are committed to delivering services of the highest standard and would welcome any comments or suggestions that you may have through our Enquiries Service.
