New Library Catalog

Overview

Starting July 13, the Library will have a new Integrated Library System, and with it a new library catalog. 

New Features:

  • No more Borrower ID and PIN. Instead, you will log into the catalog using your Office365 login, just like with the library databases.
  • Ability to save records, searches, and search history. 
  • Ability to search UBorrow from within our catalog. To do this select Statewide Collection as the search scope.
  • Ability to use citation chaining for articles. To do this, choose Articles & More as the search scope. Look for red up and down arrow icons to show who is citing the article and which articles were cited within it.

Note: these changes only affect the library catalog. Access to the library databases will remain the same.

Timeline

Although the new system will not go live until July 13, there are some functions that will be impacted leading to the transition.

  • May 1: UBorrow services disabled. During this time, use the ILL form to request materials not owned by Santa Fe College.
  • May 27: Technical services freeze. After this time, the Library will not add or edit catalog records until we are moved to the new system. 
  • July 8: Circulation services freeze. At that point all check-outs/check-ins will completed on paper. After go-live, library staff will enter that information into the new system.
  • July 13: New system available for use.

Please note that there are many configurations that will need to be completed after July 13. There are likely to be daily changes to the catalog during the week of go-live, and possibly into the following weeks. If you need any assistance, please contact a librarian.

For Faculty

Moving to a new catalog may impact links within Canvas. Any link you have created to an old library catalog record will no longer work once we move over to the new system. Links to database records will not be affected.

If you would like assistance converting old catalog links to new ones, please send your links to the Reference Desk. We will send you the corrected links. 

The Canvas LTI Curriculum Builder will no longer be offered starting October 1. The Library recommends that you plan to transition any Curriculum Builder reading lists to another format by the beginning of the Fall term. If you need assistance with this, please contact your Library Liaison. The Library is currently investigating possible replacements for this service.
