Upcoming Change to Library Search!

We are planning an exciting update to our library system in order to improve your experience with locating library resources.  

Please note that this is a preview only. The information in the preview is a snapshot from October 2023.

  • Library cards are not current. You may see items on your record which you returned after October, 2023; you won’t see items you checked out after that date. If you see a bill on your record, please don’t be alarmed.  
  • Availability information for resources is not current. Any items we’ve acquired after October 2023 are not included here. 
  • This is NOT the same URL our live instance will have. Please do not save or share any links from within this test, as they will break when we go live. 
  • Interlibrary loan is not yet integrated. Links in this test instance which say “resource sharing” will become interlibrary loan links when we go live.  
  • This landing page will only be seen if you hit New Search at the top. Almost all searches will come from the UNE Library website homepage search box as they do now. 

Your feedback is very important to us! If you have anything about the new search that you would like us to know we would love to hear about it.

What is Changing?  

We currently maintain three separate search systems. Our new system will consolidate all searching into one, easy-to-use search box! 

Additionally, this change will update the software we currently use to manage library materials. This will make it easier for you to request items, see the library materials you have borrowed, and renew items.  

What is the Timeline?

The change is currently scheduled to take place on June 5, 2024.

What About my Links & Bookmarks? 

Links or bookmarks to library resources may need to be updated once the changeover has occurred. Please reach out to us for assistance.  Links to the preview will not work once the new system goes live.

Who Can I Talk to if I Have Questions or Concerns?  

We encourage you to reach out to your subject librarian with any questions or concerns about this search system update. We can help clarify what this change means to you and help with updating links to library resources.
