Corect Speling

screen image from catalog
Spellcheck has arrived in the catalog. It works only in the keyword searches (and, yes, the keyword search includes authors, subjects & notes as well as titles). If you search for 'corect speling', for example, the catalog will cheerfully ask you "Did you mean correct spelling?" and let you either click on that or click on 'more' for additional choices. Search for 'Hawthone scarlet' and it will ask you "Did you mean Hawthorne scarlet"? Click on that and there you are with Hawthorne's Scarlet Letter. And so on.

It only works when it works; the words must be in the spellcheck software's database. But it's pretty nifty when it does work. And the array of choices you may be offered have their own poetry...
