Description

New Penn Library Homepage

FindIt! -- a new tool that searches across multiple Library resources at once. The FindIt! tool eliminates the need to know what resource to search and how to search it. Instead, you search one place and get results from E-Resources AND Franklin, Library A to Z, VCat, Library staff, etc. in one place. [more info]

PennTags -- a social bookmarking tool for locating, organizing, and sharing your favorite online resources. Members of the Penn Community can collect and maintain URLs, links to journal articles, and records in Franklin, our online catalog and VCat, our online video catalog. Once these resources are compiled, you can organize them by assigning tags (free-text keywords) and/or by grouping them into projects, according to your specific preferences. PennTags can also be used collaboratively, because it acts as a repository of the varied interests and academic pursuits of the Penn community, and can help you find topics and users related to your own favorite online resources.
