Search the new 'test' version of PILOT, the Library Catalog

VuFind Beta, now available on our website, searches the Bloomsburg University's Library Catalog, PILOT.

What is VuFind? VuFind is a new, user-friendly library resource portal, designed and developed for libraries by libraries. It provides features that make searching for books and other library resources easier and more fun to do, like the following:
  • clear, easy-to-read records with book covers
  • easy-to-apply filters, for topic, format, language, date, genre and more
  • capability to send a record by email or by text message
  • capability to export a record to RefWorks or EndNote Web 
  • 'Cite This' feature for each resource, in both APA and MLA style
Coming soon will be 'shopping cart' features and the ability to tag and share records, so stay tuned!

VuFind is still under construction. Give us your feedback to improve VuFind!
