Furman Libraries will debut, Find It @ Furman, it's new library management system on June 1, 2020. The online system will be shared among 55 other college/university libraries in the statewide consortium PASCAL (Partnership Among South Carolina Academic Libraries).
Find It @ Furman will allow for searching print and electronic resources, a more intuitive user experience, and streamlined methods for ordering, describing, and checking out library materials.
What does this mean for students, staff, faculty, and other library users?
Will I still have access to the current Library Catalog?
No. After June 30, 2020, the Library Catalog will be retired. The system is over 15 years old and has not been updated by the vendor in nearly six years. It has reached end-of-life.
How do I use the new system?
Any link or search form that used to point to the Library Catalog on our website will now point to Find It @ Furman, so you simply have to enter a search term or click a link to get there. You will still be able to search and refine your search (like in the old system), but the results will now be a more robust mix of print and electronic, even allowing you to switch to an articles search within the same website.
If you have specific questions about using the system, please e-mail us at LibrarySystems@furman.edu.
