Benefits for library users

  • Updates to items are viewable within 15 minutes
  • Search within a journal directly from a journal result
  • More flexibility over styling and functionality of the “Get It” and “View It” sections of item record
  • Accessibility and User Interface improvements, such as allowing searches with multiple resource type conditions (coming soon) and splitting Audio and Video resource types in search facets, instead of a single Audio Visual type (also coming soon)
  • Narrow down results by a new Genre filter


The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-two Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
