What you need to do to get ready for our new system: ILS Update #4


 What's happening June 30, 2017?

  • Armacost library’s new discovery service, Primo, will go live!
  • Our staff will also be busy behind the scenes settling into two more new systems.

What do you need to do now to get ready?

  • Back up saved searches and saved items in your library account. They cannot be transferred into the new system. Use these instructions or Ask Your Librarian if you need help.
  • Delete any browser bookmarks pointing to the old library search interface ( or to specific books, journals or databases before June 30. Links to specific items will be different in our new system.

How will I log in?

  • You’ll use your campus email address and password. If you’ve already logged in to MyRedlands, Moodle or another campus service, you’re automatically good to go!

How will I run a search?

  • You’ll continue to use the familiar tabbed search boxes on the library home page to find Books & More, Course Reserves, and Journals & Magazines. Searching in these boxes will automatically connect you into the new system.
  • Be sure to log in immediately after running a search. The new system needs to know you’re with the University of Redlands in order to show your options for getting full text.

Anything else I should know about the transition?

  • If you placed a hold on an item in Millennium just before the migration date, you might need to re-request that item after go live.
  • If you’re a faculty member looking to submit a course reserve request, keep using the request form for now. We’re working on improving the request process, so stay tuned!

Where can I get more information?

Visit, or Ask Your Librarian!
