Instructors asked to update links to library materials
The University Libraries debuted their new library catalog and discovery tool on Dec. 21. This change is the outcome of an 18-month project of the University of Nebraska Consortium of Libraries to upgrade to a new library services platform that touches nearly all aspects of academic library operations and has implications for materials linked in Canvas courses and syllabi.
Links created in the previous system that include encore.unl.edu or library.unl.edu in the URL will no longer be functional and will require updates. This change only affects links to library catalog records and does not affect URLs that include libraries.unl.edu or libproxy.unl.edu.
Instructors are encouraged to review all links to records in the previous catalog included in their course materials for the spring semester. Updated training materials for users is available on the Libraries’ website and will be discoverable in the Canvas Commons. Subject librarians are available to support instructors as they navigate these changes and welcome questions from campus stakeholders.
