December 1st, OSU Libraries will implement a new library system that will
change the way you use the library. The new system offers a one-stop,
convenient way to discover and request what you need!
Search Box: You’ll
see changes in how the search box works; it can now broaden your search beyond
OSU’s collections to include materials from 37 Pacific Northwest libraries.
Or you can limit your search to locate OSU items or journal articles
only. The new search box can access 9 million titles in a variety
of formats, including books, journals, and journal articles and more.
and course reserves: You’ll
see changes in how circulation and course reserves work. A tab to link you to
Course Reserves will be found on the same page as the new search box.
databases will remain available to you. Summit and OSU's Interlibrary
Loan Service will remain the same.
know for Fall Term: During the transition you may
experience some disruption in services. We encourage you to gather your
research materials prior to the Thanksgiving break (Nov. 27-30) when there will
be a system freeze. You will still be able to check out materials during
the freeze, but we do not yet know the level of disruption we might experience.
If you are teaching and your Fall Term classes feature a research
assignment near the end of the term, encourage students to do their research
and collect materials well before Thanksgiving.
migration to a new library system on December 1 may prove to be a bit bumpy, so
we appreciate your patience and support during this major transition. More
information about the change is on our help pages.
always, you can ask us
for help by phone, on chat or in person.
