Instructions For Correctly Bookmarking the IUCAT Web Site on Your Computer
Have you bookmarked the new IUCAT online catalog on your browser and wondered why when you returned to it, you received an error message stating an activity timeout had occurred? This error message happened because IUCAT uses cgi scripting for each connection. This means that when someone bookmarks the IUCAT web site, the bookmark reads the cgi scripting and adds this to the URL address. Essentially, bookmarking IUCAT really bookmarks a particular session with the system. Therefore, each time you go back to the bookmark, the browser is trying to re-establish the previous session.
Here are instructions to correct this problem in Internet Explorer and Netscape.
