Joined-Up Archaeology

After a long absence the Society of Antiquaries Library Catalogue is back online. The system has been upgraded using the Voyager library cataloguing system as supplied by Endeavor Information Systems. The catalogue currently contains all books, periodicals and periodical articles catalogued since 1988: circa 11,000 monograph titles, 19,500 periodical articles and around 900 currently received periodical titles. This project is also technically interesting in that it tests an alternative resource delivery strategy. Access is provided through the ADS server located in York with queries passed on to the Antiquaries database server located in London via a private line. In this way the catalogue is always completely up-to-date, immediately making available all material catalogued by the Library up to the day.
