New Catalog Under Construction: IMPORTANT INFORMATION

The library is migrating to a new catalog and interface! This is an ongoing process that will begin June 2024. Please bear with us as we work through this transitional period. Many of you may link to items or records in your classes, such as articles, books, and journals that are housed at the library.There is the possibility that certain old links will no longer work under the new system.

WHAT WILL BE AFFECTED:

Links to book records within the old catalog, rather than full-text ebooks themselves
Links to records within OneSearch, rather than the full text items themselves

WHAT WILL NOT BE AFFECTED:

Most full-text articles and journals linking directly to a database (ScienceDirect, JSTOR, etc.)
Most ebooks if you are linking to direct chapters or full-text volumes from the vendor (JSTOR, Ebsco, Proquest, etc.)

The migration may result in defunct links in edge cases, but for the most part the above two designations should hold true.

HOW DO I KNOW IF A LINK MIGHT BE IMPACTED?

  • Step 1: Look at the prefix of the link. Does it begin with one of the following?
    • https://ursus.maine.edu
    • https://go.exlibris.link/9B3CZ0vY
  • Step 2: If it does not, no more steps are needed. If it does, there is a potential fix. See below

EXAMPLE OF A QUICKFIX:

An old link such as:

http://ursus.maine.edu/record=b1840604~S1

could be reformatted to something similar to:

https://maine.primo.exlibrisgroup.com/discovery/search?tab=Everything&search_scope=MyInst_and_CI&vid=01MAINE_INST:UM&offset=0&query=any,contains,b1840604*

Take note of the location and adjustment to the bib record (b184…etc).

THIS IS ONE POSSIBLE FIX, BUT OUR FIRST RECOMMENDATION IS ALWAYS TO REACH OUT TO A LIBRARIAN IN YOUR SUBJECT AREA TO HELP YOU ASSESS AND RESOLVE THE ISSUE. If you are not sure who your subject librarian is, consult this page.

Welcome to Fogler! Meet Your Subject Specialist Librarian.

Every department has a subject specialist librarian who is available for one-on-one research assistance as well as individual class instruction.  Use the link above to find your subject librarian.  We look forward to working with you!

Faculty and staff members who are traveling outside the United States may wish to contact their subject librarian ahead of time to ensure access to library resources.
