The Camden County Library System now has a new catalog system. Why the change? We want to continue to offer the best possible service and online experience for you. Upgrading our catalog software is an important part of doing this. We will be moving from our current out-of-date catalog system to Koha, the most used catalog system worldwide.
The new CamCat will have a number of features that will make your searches easier. It will be more mobile friendly – you will now be able to use all features of the catalog on your phone or tablet. You will be able to decide which notices you want to receive, and when you receive them. Want an email when you check out or check in items? Want a notice a week before your item is due, or the day before? You can set that! Going on vacation? You can suspend your holds temporarily and not lose your place in line.
The new catalog also includes Novelist select, with reader ratings from Goodreads, professional reviews, recommendations for other titles and authors, book discussion guides, and more. You’ll be able to contribute to the catalog too! Add your own tags to help others find the titles you love.
Did you use lists in the current catalog? Not only can you keep lists in the new CamCat, but you can also add comments to individual titles and then email the list to friends and family, where they can click on links of your recommendations to request them.
Telephone renewals will be temporarily suspended as we set up the new system. If you are unable to use the online renewal system, call your local branch for assistance.
If you have questions, feel free to ask a staff member for more information.
