New Look for Library's Online System

Big changes are in store for Shoen Library. 

At the end of June 2013, Shoen Library is moving with partner libraries from 37 stand-alone library systems to one. The popular library system students and faculty use to search for information and borrow library materials is being replaced. The new and improved user interface will make it easier to find information you need and request items from Marylhurst and through Summit.

As a group, the Alliance consortium is working toward unlocking opportunities that will help build individual library collections as a single collection, share services and resources, and exploit new technologies. This move from 37 to one will help achieve those goals.

Because this is a big migration from many systems to one, it will take 18 months to transition all Alliance libraries to the new system.  In the meantime, library patrons will experience a hybrid system, with many of the advantages of the new, next generation system and a few remnants of the old.

Marylhurst is one of the first institutions to move to this new environment, so services may be a bit challenging during the transition.  Information on how to use this new interface, including use of mobile apps, will be coming soon.

Find out more about the new system,  or go to the FAQ.
