Change is coming to the Libraries! On December 18, 2017 UNLV Libraries will launch a new Library Services Platform.
How does this impact you?: There will be a new look and feel to searching the UNLV Libraries holdings and viewing your patron account for renewing books, paying fines, etc. The new system will replace the online Library Catalog and the Libraries’ Quick Search with a single interface. Advanced search algorithms will facilitate easier discovery and access of the Libraries’ content.
The new system will also provide enhancements to the staff interface that the Libraries use to manage library resources, patron records, course reserves, circulation, and library catalog records. Key benefits of the new system include integrated management of print and electronic library resources, streamlining of staff workflows, and reduced maintenance and support needs.
This new library services platform launch is a collaboration between UNLV University Libraries, the Wiener-Rogers Law Library, College of Southern Nevada Libraries, the Nevada State College Library, and the Desert Research Institute Libraries.
UNLV Libraries is excited about this upcoming transition and staff have been working hard over the past year to prepare for the change to the new system.
