Optimising access to print and online Library resources: Optimising access to print and online Library resources

This summer a change is coming to our core Library service

We're replacing our Library Management System, which deals with everything from requesting Library materials, through ordering and processing, via searching for content right through to borrowing and returning items. Moving to a new system will enable us to offer you a better experience, with smoother linking, to get you what you want more easily.

Our resources will not change, but you will search for and access them in a different way. So we've created this guide to tell you all about what's happening and when, and will offer a few sneak previews as soon as we can. But that's not all - we'll also be offering a virtual drop-in demo session of the new system (to be announced).  

We aim to make the process as seamless as possible, with little disruption to you during the change over, but the new system will look different and make searching the Library's online resources much easier. Instead of having to search the Library Catalogue separately to DISCOVER and then moving over to Get It For Me for items we don't have, we'll have just one simple system for you to search our collections and make a request in one place. Ultimately, you'll find and get the resources you need in a much smoother way.

Our new system goes live on Tuesday 23rd August 2022, with a few add-ons to follow, but in the meantime please take a look through the information below.
