Introduction to the Coursedog Catalog Solution

The Coursedog Catalog (CAT) is a comprehensive Catalog Management System with a robust content management editor and workflow system.


The catalog contains two components:

  1. The internal, administrator facing editor tool used to build the catalog
  2. The customized, public-facing catalog to share with the entire campus community

This is a look at the administrative interface:

This is an example of the public-facing view:

Page Content

Every page on the public catalog contains the following 4 elements:

  1. Navbar (which includes search bar on the far right)
  2. Page Content (shown in the middle)
  3. Navigation (shown on the far right)
  4. Footer (shown in second image)

Navigation and Search

There are two ways to access a page in the catalog:

  1. Use the navigation panel
  2. Use the search input

The navigation panel can contain links, and groups of links which are accessible by clicking on the items with a “^” symbol next to them:

Clicking on a link in the navigation panel will automatically redirect you to the corresponding page. All the links, groups of links, and name of links that are contained within the navigation panel are fully editable in the Internal Catalog Editor tool (see details below).  

To search for a page, type in a search query into the search box, and the system will automatically redirect you to a search results page, shown here:

For each result, we display

  1. Page Name
  2. Page Link
  3. Brief snippet of page content that contains the search query
