New in 2016 at the Monroe Library

The Monroe Library is undertaking some exciting upgrades to our
services.  We hope that these upgrades will provide even better
service and access to information resources for our users. Please note,
there may be some disruption to online services during the transition
time. If you are working on research that requires library services,
please plan for possible outages between Dec. 28, 2015 and Jan. 7, 2016. See the
schedule below for more detailed information.

QUICKSEARCH IMPLEMENTATION:
The search box on the library homepage will lead you to a new searching
tool. Using QuickSearch, you can search a unified index of the
library's resources including books, online journal articles,
e-books, and more - all from one search box.

JOURNAL FINDER INTERFACE UPGRADE:
The new Journal Finder includes improved searching and easier navigation.
It allows you to search or browse all publications made available to you
by the library, regardless of the publisher.

LIBRARY CATALOG:
The catalog will be moving to a new hosted solution that will allow us to
take advantage of some of the exciting new features being offered by our
catalog vendor.

POSSIBLE SERVICE INTERRUPTIONS:

        - December 28, 2015: Journal Finder will be unavailable.

        - January 4-5, 2016: The catalog will be unavailable as we move to a
new server.

        - January 7, 2016: The search box on the homepage may be unavailable
as we transition to the new QuickSearch.

        Thank you for your patience during this transition. We look forward to
introducing these upgrades to improve online access to library resources.
