University of Wisconsin Library Catalogs
Madison and Milwaukee Campuses Network Library System (NLS)
The Network Library System (NLS) is the online public catalog
of the libraries at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. NLS supports separate online
catalogs for each campus.
The UW-Madison online catalog contains more than 1.7 million
titles cataloged since 1976, located in 25 libraries on the
campus and at the Center for Research Libraries in Chicago.
This represents roughly 50% of the collections. The
UW-Milwaukee catalog contains approximately 900,000 titles and
represents 85% of the general collection.
If available on your system, please use tn3270 (telnet
supporting 3270 emulation) to access blue.adp.wisc.edu When
connected you are presented a menu from which you select NLS1,
the library catalog. (If you don't know how your function keys
are mapped, TAB to the option you want and press ENTER.)
Telnet access is also available via a gateway machine providing
the necessary 3270 emulation. From your local host use telnet
to access nls.adp.wisc.edu . You will be prompted to enter a
terminal type. VT100 is the default, or you can enter the
command list to display a list of supported terminal types.
Upon entering a valid terminal type, select NLS1 from the menu
displayed to connect to the library catalog.
Upon entering NLS, a screen is displayed at which you either
press ENTER to search the Madison catalog or type Mil and press
ENTER to search the Milwaukee catalog.
To exit, enter the command exit on any screen to return to the
Main Menu. Here you select the option to quit. This returns
control to your local host.
Who Can Use The Catalog:
The University of Wisconsin library catalogs for the Madison
and Milwaukee campuses are currently available to all
Xterm users or other windowing software users must set their
window size to 80 characters x 25 lines.

The University of New Brunswick
The University of New Brunswick is pleased to announce that our
online catalogue, known as PHOENIX, is now available over the
Internet. We believe that we are the first Canadian library to
make this capability available to off-campus users.
To access PHOENIX, TN3270 to unbmvs1.csd.unb.ca (184.108.40.206).
When the logon screen appears, TAB down to the "Application"
field and enter "netlib" (without quotation marks) followed by a
carriage return. The first PHOENIX screen will appear.
To disconnect, use your TN3270 software to drop the connection.
Or, from the PHOENIX command line, type Stop<cr>. A screen will
appear giving further directions. Note: you should know what
key is mapped to the CLEAR function. This will be different for
each software package but Ctrl-Home may work.
Access is restricted to three simultaneous users from the
You will be logged out automatically after five minutes of
inactivity or if your session exceeds thirty minutes.
PHOENIX was a joint project by the library and UNB's Computing
Services Department. It was developed in the period 1979-1980.
PHOENIX searches can be done using either the Menu or Command
modes. Initially, the user is placed in the Command Mode but
can switch to Menu by typing Menu<cr>. Returning to Command
Mode is accomplished by pressing the Pf3 key.
Searching in Command is accomplished with the "s" command. Set
results are shown through the use of the display command. The
format is d set# format range. Typing d5l 1-5 would display
records 1-5 of set number 5 in the long format. Formats
available are (s)hort, (m)edium, (l)ong, (t)itle and x for
Browsing of indexes is also possible in Command mode.
For more information use the online help facility or the online
lessons. E-mail enquiries may also be sent to SLOAN@UNB.CA.
PHOENIX consists of a number of databases. Most are full MARC
format. The major exception to this is ENLIST. This database is
maintained by the Engineering Library. Brief records are
provided for all Engineering Library books, theses, pamphlets,
microforms and some journal articles. In addition, some faculty
members and special libraries within Fredericton maintain their
collections using ENLIST. Browsing is not supported in ENLIST.
The University of New Brunswick is one of Canada's oldest
institutions of higher learning, with roots dating back to
1785. It offers degrees in administration, arts, computer
science, education, engineering, forestry, law, nursing,
physical education and science. The Harriet Irving Library and
the branches at Engineering, Education and Science and Forestry
have a number of strengths which may be of interest to Internet
users. We have a particularly strong collection in Canadian
Maritime Provincial history, including Loyalist history. (Not
all Loyalist materials are in PHOENIX. Send enquiries to
HILDER@UNB.CA) UNB is also a Canadian and New Brunswick
government documents repository. GovDocs enquiries may be sent
The University also has a growing and vibrant campus in Saint
John. Their library is called the Ward Chipman Library and its
catalogue is searchable from PHOENIX by typing BEGIN WCL.
Science Fiction fans may be interested in viewing their strong
collection of this type of material.
