Ottawa relaunches Sm@rtLibrary

The Capital Sm@rtLibrary portal, which permits searching the catalogues of 12 libraries in the National Capital Region through a single interface, recently had a "soft" re-launch.

The re-launch features a new interface. Ottawa Public Library borrowers will now be able to physically borrow items from l’Université du  Québec en Outaouais (UQO) the Canadian Museum of Civilization, as well as Carleton University and the University of Ottawa.

The catalogues of several federal reference libraries are linked into the system. Library and Archives Canada is noticeably absent from the list.

More details on lending partners, the services offered and a link to search are at http://smartlib-bibliogen.ca/intro-en.
