Great news: 439,141 bibliographic records from the Columbia Law School Library catalog have been loaded into the Columbia Libraries catalog (CLIO). Researchers in a variety of disciplines such as human rights, history, gender, international relations, and early church history can now find relevant material without checking each catalog separately. Law is now the fourth largest collection in the catalog after Offsite and Online (each at 2.6 million) and Butler Stacks (1.07 million).
As a reminder, improving our online catalog is a continuous process – this addition is the first of a series of important additions to our catalog in the near future. Your feedback is a vital component to our work. We welcome comments and suggestions for improving CLIO. Please use the Suggestions & Feedback form under the “Help” menu in the upper right corner of CLIO, or Ask a Librarian.
CLIO is built on top of the open-source Blacklight search and discovery engine in use at many peer institutions including Stanford, University of Virginia, University of Wisconsin, and Johns Hopkins University. The underlying technologies powering the search are the open-source search index SOLR and the Ruby on Rails web framework.
