Erik Delfino, Chairman of our Library Committee, has asked us to announce the rollout of the New Catalog System for the Martin F. O'Rourke Memorial Railroad Library.  Erik and his team have been working tirelessly for months to convert our catalog data, which was housed in an Access Database and put on-line in HTML and EXCEL formats, to a fully searchable on-line catalog complete with cover photos for many of the volumes. This is a very exciting development. It's now so much easier to see the breadth and depth of information in our library, and the information is available just as soon as it is entered in the system, vice having to wait for a manual web site update as in years past!
