Library Catalog shifts to new platform Dec. 15

November 16, 2023

The OSU Library Catalog will shift to a platform called FOLIO. This change will occur sometime between the evening of Dec. 15 and the evening of Dec. 17. The new platform will operate similarly to our current catalog, but users may notice a few differences in the interface. Because the FOLIO platform is open source, the switch will result in huge savings over the next few years, and our developers will be able to build custom modifications for our installation.

If you have permalinks to catalog records or searches, you will need to update these after the migration. Note: this shift will not impact any direct links to online journals or databases, those will remain unchanged.

All patron records will also migrate to the new platform. If you have any questions about finding your loans, recalls or requests, please contact the Circulation Desk at [email protected]. Training videos on searching, saving records, and accessing your account will be released in the spring.
