Now you can search for the books, DVD’s and other materials from the online catalog of the Ethel K. Smith Library using either your myStart portal (http://mystart.wingate.edu) or iGoogle page (http://www.google.com/ig?hl=en) with the new EKSplorer Google widget.
Installing the widget onto your myStart or iGoogle page is easy. Just click on the “Add stuff” link in myStart or iGoogle and type in “Ethel K. Smith Online Catalog,” in the search box. From there just click on the “Add it now” button, click “Back to iGoogle Home,” and there is it.
Searching is also easy. Just type in your terms. As an option, you can select to search by keyword, author, title, or subject. The default is keyword. Then click the search button and a new window will pop up with the full online catalog and a list of your results.
One more thing, if you have not created a myStart page, now would be a great time. In addition to the Online Catalog widget, you can also add widgets for your other myGateApps, such as e-mail, calendar, and documents.
