To use the find and replace function for the cataloguing widget. 1. Copy code into word 2. At the beginning of the code replace the site id according to the instructions at the libguide site 3. Determine your catalog string then 4. Find on the ribbon at the top of word the Replace function Then type domain in the top box and in the replace box type the catalog name Hit the command which is greyed out here replace all and you will now have the correct code 5.
