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 if you have any further comments or questions.
