May 2-6: McGill Electronic Resources will display under ‘Libraries Worldwide’ in Discovery


Published: 17Apr2019

As a final step in our migration to the Discovery catalogue, a verification of our library data will be run on physical items in our collection starting at the end of day on Thursday, May 2 and lasting until the early morning of Monday, May 6.

During this period, search results will show as “Libraries Worldwide”, instead of “McGill University Library”. Links will continue to display underneath the title and all records for physical formats will continue to say “Held by McGill Library”, but electronic resources records, such as for ebooks, ejournals and articles, will say “Held by other libraries worldwide” with the availability link appearing below. E-resources can still be accessed at this time. Please click on the red button for availability information.

For an example of what results will look like, see the image above.
