OSCAR to be Discontinued in Fall 2021. With the start of the Fall 2021 semester, WorldCat Discovery will replace OSCAR as the library's online catalog. This change is part of a larger behind-the-scenes transition from our SirsiDynix Integrated Library System to OCLC's Worldshare Management Services.
Please use WorldCat Discovery as you formerly used OSCAR - to search for relevant library materials on your topic using any combination of keywords, subjects, authors, or titles. The key difference between the two systems is that OSCAR only searched our library's physical collections, but a WorldCat Discovery search includes results from both print and electronic library holdings.
WorldCat Discovery filters can limit search results to include only print books, e-books, fulltext content, or peer-reviewed journal articles depending on your research needs. Shelf locations, call numbers, and availability statements display within the item record for circulating books, reference books, and DVDs. E-books and e-journal articles can be downloaded or accessed directly from within the item record.
WorldCat Discovery can also help identify information available in other libraries worldwide. Many of these books and journal articles can be requested using our Inter-Library Loan service.
We hope that our new library system will improve access to our print and electronic collections and enhance the research experiences of NJCU students, faculty, and staff.If you need any assistance, please reach out to us via Ask A Librarian
