Library Systems Transition in July

The library is excited to share our new system with you beginning in mid-July! For those of you doing research this summer, here are just a few things we want you to be aware of over the next couple of weeks.

 

  • Beginning July 1st, HopeCat (“Books + Media” search) will be retired, and there is a minor blackout period before the new system, Hope Primo, goes live on July 17th.

  • Almost all library resources are still findable and accessible via The MightyFind and our databases. All of our services will continue, including InterLibrary Loan.

  • The only content with limited discoverability is print and microform holdings for periodicals. Please contact the Research Help Desk (x7904, askalibrarian@hope.edu) if you need assistance in locating materials you think might be in print serials.

  • You will also not have access to your library account during the blackout. Record of your current checkouts will be automatically forwarded to your new account in Hope Primo/Alma. Please contact circulation (circ@hope.edu) if you have questions.

 

Thank you for your flexibility during this transition! Don’t hesitate to ask questions if there is anything else we can clarify. More announcements will be coming about the new system, training opportunities, and our launch party in August!
