The Clark Library’s catalog, also known as UP Library Search, will have a new look starting August 16. The catalog’s functionality and features remain the same, but the overall design is much improved and more user-friendly. We invite you to take a look by entering keywords in the search box on the Library homepage. This will transfer you into the new version of the library catalog. Please email any feedback to email@example.com and if you have questions about how to best search the catalog, contact the research desk at x7788 or use library chat.
UP Library Search
On Tuesday, January 20, Summit requesting will be integrated into the UP Library Search system. Once this is implemented, users will need to sign into their library “My Account” in order to see options to request items through Summit. This change streamlines the Summit experience by eliminating multiple prompts for authentication and adding the ability to track the status of Summit items through UP library accounts. This is the final phase of a two-year migration to one shared system among all 37 academic libraries in the Orbis Cascade Alliance. There may be some bumps as it goes live, but staff are committed to resolving issues. Please contact the library for help with any difficulties related to Summit requesting.
Ready, set, go! The new library management system goes live on June 16. As a result, UP Library Search will be replacing the UP-only Catalog and UP WorldCat. Visit About UP Library Search to learn more. Also, further customizations will be made to the system over the summer, and we invite you to be our partner in the fine tuning. Contact us to report any problems and tell us how it is working for you.
More changes are coming to the Clark Library! Last year it was the building, this year it is a new library management system. During the summer, the library will move from a stand-alone system to one that is shared with 37 Summit partner libraries. This is a large project and it’s realistic to anticipate some bumps in the road, but library staff are making this change to improve the research experience for all students and faculty, and to better manage library resources. As a result, UP Library Search will replace UP WorldCat and the UP-only Catalog. Tutorials and support will be available as the system launches in June.
