Changes coming to the PCC Library

Posted by

The following is from Donna Reed, Director of the PCC Library:

The library has been hard at work setting up the new library search box, which arrives on December 16, 2013. Library staff is excited to share that this new discovery interface will bring all of our materials together and allow you to search for everything in the library in one spot, returning results for books, articles and videos from across our collections regardless of format.

What to expect

80+ databases in one search – you’ll discover more content because so many of the databases PCC subscribes to are included in a single search.

Single sign-on – your MyPCC credentials will authenticate in the new system and unlock access to all things PCC library.

Links will need updating – if you’re currently linking to library materials, those will need updating, please see the Persistent Links page on the Library website for instructions.

Drop in sessions – for the PCC community will be held in the library at CA, RC and SY from 12-1pm M-F the first and second week of Winter term. Come by to try the new search box with us!

Visit the new site for a sneak peek (it is still somewhat under construction)?

Follow news about the migration on the library website.
