COMING SOON New Library Search and Discovery

1 July 2019


Library Services is replacing its catalogue, journal search and collection management functions with a new and improved system. 

Some features of the new system are:

  • Seamless access between the library catalogue and your library account
  • Virtual view of adjacent items on shelf, when browsing the catalogue
  • New and enhanced catalogue search terminals
  • Flexible borrowing – longer loans and larger loan allowances

 

Once the rollout date of this new system has been confirmed, the following Library Services functions will be affected for 2-3 days: 

  • Borrowing
  • Renewals
  • Reservations/Holds awaiting collection 

These services will need to be carried out manually at the Welcome Desk, and will be reflected on your library account within a few days. 

Inter-library Loan and Document Supply requests will not be processed, and the laptop loan service will also be unavailable during this time.

A fines amnesty will be in operation from go-live of the New Library Search and Discovery System until Sunday 29th September. All accrued fines up to and including Sunday 29th September will be cleared.

Please email library@qmul.ac.uk if you have any further comments or questions.
