Library Launches UO LibrarySearch, New Search and Discovery Tool

Image

The UO Libraries has introduced a powerful new library search and discovery tool--UO LibrarySearch--with an interface that will allow users to quickly find both print and electronic materials, including journal articles, held by UO Libraries and libraries who are members of the Orbis Cascade Alliance (Summit libraries). Users will now be able to search more efficiently for items held by the 37 Summit libraries and more easily retrieve information on the items in the search results.

Several new resources have been developed to aid users during the transition to the new system. Three buttons near the LibrarySearch box on the library's home page provide convenient access to some of the resources.

A new sign-in system has been implemented that  will allow UO users to reap the full benefits of the search process. Complete information on the sign-in process and other new interface features is provided on the LibrarySearch Help & FAQ webpage at http://library.uoregon.edu/librarysearch/help.

Additionally, during the first few weeks of fall term, the library will offer a series of training sessions on LibrarySearch for those who have questions about using the new system or are interested in using various new tools to find, filter, and deliver results for books, articles, and other media. The schedule for the help sessions is at http://library.uoregon.edu/node/4444.
