What is HCPLC Connect, anyway?

HCPLC Connect is a new catalog search experience that will connect you with books, movies and music, technology, your account, new experiences, and other readers.

Why are you changing the catalog? The old one was fine.

During the 2020 VISION planning process, customers told us they wanted well-organized and easily accessible materials in a variety of formats. Those discussions included requests to improve our catalog and make it easier for customers to find what they are looking for.
