New Library Catalog in August 2024!

Copley Library and the Legal Research Center (LRC) are excited to announce a new library catalog interface, Primo VE, coming in August 2024!

System Migration to New Library Catalog Interface

What does this mean for me?

The current library catalog interface through our homepage search box will be replaced in August 2024 by a much more robust and streamlined search and access experience for your research and curricular needs.

When will changes happen?

There will be no changes to the current library catalog interface for Copley Library and LRC users during the remaining weeks of Spring 2024.  In the meantime, the libraries have already begun preparing our catalog records behind the scenes to move to the new system.  We will regularly update this guide with important dates and the ways we will help you during summer service disruptions.

What about my links to library resources in my syllabus or in Canvas for Summer 2024, Fall 2024, and beyond?

If you use the library catalog's permalinks to share with others, the current library permalinks will not work in the new interface.  Your Copley Library subject specialist or Legal Research Center reference librarian will be ready to help you identify new links once the new interface is live. In the meantime, you can locate impacted links you have stored and re-shared by identifying any links that begin with: 

If you share those current permalinks with your Copley Library subject specialist or Legal Research Center reference librarian now, they will be ready to offer new catalog permalinks once the system migration is complete.

Who should I contact for more information?

You can start with your Copley Library subject specialist or Legal Research Center reference librarian!
