The Library will be launching its new resource discovery system in early August, which will upgrade the Summon and Catalogue search resources. The search system will provide all Library users with a simple, single point of access for searching, discovering and accessing all of the Library’s content. CLT are working with the Library to allow you to access the new search system via Moodle and to renew books that you have on loan.
As well as being more user friendly, the new search system will improve the Library’s print and digital resource management, with stronger analytics allowing greater insight into collection management and usage.
The implementation of the new system is currently underway and while there may be some disruption to the Library’s services, the Library will aim to keep this to a minimum. The project team are currently working on the name for the new system and this will be announced shortly.
