New Library System and OneSearch Discovery Platform are live now!
2017-07-25 18:30 | News

On 17 July 2017, the PolyU Library and all UGC-funded university libraries successfully launched a single cloud-based Shared Integrated Library System (ILS) and OneSearch discovery platform to replace eight stand-alone library systems.

Enhancements on the New Library System

Embedded HKALL (Hong Kong Academic Library Link) and Interlibrary Loan
OneSearch allows users to seamlessly search and request print and shared electronic collections from all eight UGC-funded university libraries in one go.

Responsive Web Design
With a responsive web design, OneSearch is optimized for browsing and reading on mobile devices - be it a smartphone, tablet or desktop computer.

Intuitive Search Interface
OneSearch has an easy to use, modern interface that brings you an improved user experience. You can easily navigate through search results on the "bento-box" style display grouped by major resource types, and further narrow down results using the “Refine my results” tab.

Flexible Renewal
If your loaned items are not recalled or requested by other patrons, you can renew any time up to the maximum loan period.

Seamless Single Sign-On (SSO)
With the new ILS, you can sign in with the University’s NetID and NetPassword to use Library services and public computers. Sign in once to SSO-enabled applications such as MyRecord, and you can use other Library services such as remote access to Library e-resources, HKALL, Interlibrary loans, etc. without signing in again. For more information about NetID and NetPassword, please visit this page.

Enhanced MyRecord
You can view all your checked out items in MyRecord, including those borrowed using your JULAC Borrower’s Card. You no longer need to manage different library accounts and passwords for each JULAC library. If you borrow books from other UGC-funded libraries in person, all your loan status will appear on your PolyU Library account.

If you have further questions on the new OneSearch, please feel free to contact our Research Helpdesk (3/F) in person, by phone at 2766-6863 or via email at lbviews@polyu.edu.hk.
