Dear Faculty, Students, and Staff,
The Carleton and St. Olaf Libraries are excited to announce that you’ll soon have a new way to search for library materials. This summer, the libraries will transition to Catalyst, our new library catalog. The new system will look a little different, but you will be able to find all the same library materials as before— and it will include some new features we think you will really appreciate.
We are making this transition now because our old system is no longer being supported, and Catalyst will bring us up-to-date. You will notice changes as we transition over the summer, with a final upgrade in August. Library staff at both Carleton and St. Olaf are working hard to make sure Catalyst will be ready when you all return in the fall.
There’s only one thing that you may need to do to prepare before June 19: if you save lists or searches in Bridge Squared, ask a librarian (Carleton/St. Olaf) for help exporting them or see the Catalyst transition blog for instructions.
We won’t stuff your inbox with updates about Catalyst over the summer, but we will be sharing more information on our blog, https://blogs.carleton.edu/bridgeoutreach/. Library staff will be available during the summer and welcome your questions and feedback.
Have a great summer — and look for Catalyst in the fall!
Carleton and St. Olaf Library Staff
