Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do I need to take any action to use the new interface? 

A: No! We’ll take care of everything!  When we complete the redirect in early July 2019, we will redirect MARC links to our new interface, and discovery layers like Summon and Primo will auto-redirect as well.  Customers should update their LibGuides and links in A-Z lists, whenever convenient, to ensure all points of access are redirecting to the new interface.

A: Yes! Submit this form and we'll contact you to set up a time.

A: From now until mid-June, dual access on both interfaces will be available to make the transition simple for you and your patrons.
