Helmke Library’s catalog is getting an upgrade. Not only will the upgrade help with showing newly acquired material faster in the catalog, but it also will prepare the library for a system (starting in Spring 2022) that makes borrowing and returning materials from the other two Purdue campuses easier.
On May 11, the library will migrate to the new catalog. This means that the “search everything,” catalog, and e-journal searches (including the alphabetical list of electronic journals) will be down for that day. But patrons still can check out materials and access other digital services, like our article databases. Full access to the upgraded catalog will be available by 8 a.m. on Wednesday, May 12.
Please note: If you have created and saved searches in your account on the library catalog, you’ll need to view and note down what they are by May 9, so you can recreate them in the upgraded library catalog when it goes live on May 12.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
