The Libraries has upgraded to a new cloud-based library services platform. The Libraries' previous user search interface –- Classic Catalog and Summon -- were replaced with a newer, unified Libraries Search. This change will benefit all Libraries users and is foundational for realizing our academic strategic plan and future improvements for years to come.

NOTE: During the initial launch of the new Libraries Search, very few electronic resources will be discoverable through Libraries Search and Find a Journal. Access to our electronic resources are still available through the Databases list.

Electronic resources will be activated in Libraries Search on an ongoing basis. For help finding electronic resources, please contact the Libraries via the Get Help page or libref@syr.edu.
