Late last month the Columbia University Libraries announced a new way to search library resources, CLIO Beta. This new search tool not only searches the traditional catalog, CLIO, but also the search tool Summon, the University’s digital repository (Academic Commons),  the library archives and more. CLIO Beta will eventually replace the current version CLIO, however, the default will continue to be the current version of CLIO for some time yet.

Check out the improved search options, clearer results formatting and item-specific requesting options (i.e. interlibrary loan, inter-campus delivery, etc.) at If you have suggestions for the CLIO Beta development team there is a feedback tab on every page and known issues are collected on the CLIO Beta blog.
