The New York Appellate Division Fourth Department Law Library has just announced in the Spring 2009 issue of their Law Library Newsletter rolling the introduction of a new online catalog. It will be rolled out during the month of March.
The move to a new system was prompted by the end of vendor development and support for the Horizon software, which has been in use by the library since 2000. The Appellate Division Law Library will launch its own system, CeLLO (Court Law Library Online), and the Supreme Court libraries around the state will launch a different system.
According to library staff, one key advantage to having their own system is that when searching the catalog, users will be able to only pull up titles owned by their library. In the current setup, users often found titles that were not owned by their library, but owned by other law libraries around the state
