New LibrarySearch coming soon!

We’ve got some exciting news!

Over the past few months we’ve been working behind the scenes to develop a new LibrarySearch system that will make finding library resources quicker and easier.

What?

LibrarySearch will replace the current Library Catalogue and Find A Journal.

LibrarySearch will give a more integrated search (showing books, eBooks, articles, journals and more) in a modern interface with several new features.

It will look like this:

When?

LibrarySearch will go live at the end of May. Between 29th & 30th May you won’t be able to place any holds, although you can still borrow and return items.  This will be followed up in June by a new reading lists system with a similar updated interface to LibrarySearch.

Do I need to do anything?

Signing into your new LibrarySearch account will remain the same, and anything you currently have on loan or on hold will be transferred to the new system. However, if you have any lists saved in your old library catalogue account, you may want to take a copy of these (you can print or email items from My Lists in the old catalogue) as they will not transfer to the new system.  You may also want to take a copy of your Checkout History as this will not be transferred.

If you want to do this, you should do it by 28th May.  If you have any questions, please get in touch with us at library@rgu.ac.uk
