Library Search update project: New launch date, improved link redirects, and integrated Click and Collect requests

We previously announced that New Library Search would replace the current Library Search on 5 September. Unfortunately, due to an unforeseen implementation issue, we have had to delay the launch by one week. New Library Search will now replace the current system on 12 September. We apologise for this delay but it is necessary to allow us to launch New Library Search with full functionality.

We are excited to announce two important developments that will make the transition to New Library Search easier for everyone.

  1. We previously told you that we would have redirects in place to send any existing Library Search links to the home page of New Library Search. We are pleased to say that the redirect system has been improved to support deep links. All existing Library Search links will redirect to the equivalent item in New Library Search. The redirects will be put in place on 12 September.
  2. We will be integrating our existing Click and Collect service into New Library Search. This will allow you to place Click and Collect requests for any loanable material the library holds directly from your list of search results. If the item you request is available it will be collected within 48 hours and you will receive an email notifying you that it is waiting for you to collect. If the item is on-loan to another library user the normal recall rules apply. The book will be reserved for you when it is returned by the borrower, and you will receive an email notifying you that the book is available for you to collect.

We look forward to launching New Library Search on the 12 September. If you have any questions please contact us at library at warwick dot ac dot uk.
