Our state library consortium, CARLI, has decided to retire the SFX journal index at the end of this month on October 31, 2020.
But, never fear! You can still search for results from a specific journal using our new discovery service, PrimoVE.
If you require any assistance, please contact the USF Library reference desk at 815-740-5041.
The USF Library will be CLOSED on Monday, September 7th for Labor Day. The Wadsworth Commons area on the main level will remain accessible via ID card swipe.
On Wednesday, June 24th, the USF Library will be moving to a new search interface and catalog system called PrimoVE.
Account information for all USF students, faculty and staff will be fully ported over to the new system, as well as all in process holds and item checkouts. PrimoVE also syncs directly with the MyUSF Portal, so users will no longer be required to establish a separate login.
We hope for a seamless transition, but please be aware there may be some minor interruptions to catalog and library account access as we complete the migration process during the week of the 24th.
Additional information and training opportunities will be made available in the fall. If you think of any questions or concerns in the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out to Brigitte Bell, Director of Library Services, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
