Display Issue with Library Catalog Advanced Search

Dear Hubbard Library Patrons,

There is currently a known error in the display of selected databases within the advanced search feature of the library catalog.

Please be aware that the vendor who manages our library catalog (OCLC) is aware of the issue and working on a resolution.

In the meantime, students and faculty are still able to conduct searches from the advanced search page and select their desired databases from the righthand database menu (instructions here). The error does not affect search functionality, but rather the correct database selections do not display properly after clicking “save changes.”

To repeat, the advanced search page will still search your selected databases, and you can (correctly) view which databases are selected by expanding the “All Databases” menu and viewing which boxes are selected. The “Searching Databases” section and (accompanying number) will likely be inaccurate until OCLC provides further updates.

Similarly, the “Reset” button continues to function as normal by restoring the default database selections, but you will need to expand one of the lower menus to see the selections accurately.

Please feel free to email us at lib-systems@fuller.edu if you have any additional questions or would like assistance in using Advanced Search.

Hello Fuller Alumni Patrons!

Accessing them through other library sites such as the WorldCat item record page or the Database page may prevent you from viewing the full-text content. 

Please let us know if you have any questions by emailing us at lib-systems@fuller.edu. Thank you!
