We’re pleased to announce that Library OneSearch will have a new look as the school year begins! The new look will go live Sunday, September 15, 2019.
OneSearch’s current interface is four years old this fall (that’s about 100 in internet years) and, based on user research, Ex Libris (our system vendor) has made some refinements to the product that will improve your library research experience.
Functionality remains much the same: you’ll still be able to search the Library’s catalog PLUS hundreds of thousands of articles, images, etc. at the same time, link to full-text when it’s available, see what you have checked out, renew your Library materials, and much, much more. It just looks a little different.
The official debut isn’t till Sunday, but you can have a sneak peek right now by visiting the new-look link:
Be sure to sign in and check out My Favorites (pushpin icon) and My Library Card (Menu > card icon). All your saved records and searches have migrated from old E-Shelf & Queries to My Favorites. All your loans, requests, etc. have migrated from old My Account to My Library Card. (You’ll note that the old folders metaphor from e-Shelf has been dropped in favor of “labels.” But no worries: labels work the same way folders did.)
As always, let us know if you have questions about OneSearch (or other library-related things): Visit our Help page to find your favorite way of reaching us! We’re here to help.
And happy researching!
