Can you suggest a name for a resource discovery system?

Asked by Stinley (11498points) March 8th, 2017

This is an extended library catalogue which includes print and e-books, journal titles, articles from journals. It’s a one stop shop for everything that the library has to offer and is available online. I’ve heard of a few like ‘Discover’, ‘Locate’, etc. Can you help come up with some ideas? A librarian colleague is asking.

My local library has a page they call ‘Online Resources’.

Not helpfu if you are looking for a clever name. But it is what you describe, a page to reach all the online offerings.

Here’s the page. If you can’t reach that from the UK, here are the section headings.

Eh, on second thought probably not going to be approved by any library board.
