A year ago, WSU Libraries unveiled Search It, the integrated library system that you use to find information not only at WSU Libraries but also at other libraries, databases, digital collections, WorldCat, and more. This was part of a two-year long project in which 37 libraries in the Orbis Cascade Alliance all moved to this new system. We have now reached the culmination of that project.

Things may look a bit different while using Search It. Starting January 20th there are some changes coming, as our system becomes even more integrated with the other 37 libraries.

What this means for you:

  • There will be one place (Search It) to look for and request items from our library and other libraries. You will no longer be shuffled from Search It to another catalog in order to request things from Summit libraries. This will all happen within Search It.
  • You will experience fewer requests to authenticate with your network ID and password.
  • The separate catalog for Summit items is going away. Summit.worldcat.org is going away on January 20th, but don’t worry. You will be able to find and request items from other Summit libraries via Search It.
  • If you use WorldCat, it is available in our Databases list.

If you have questions, comments, need help, etc., please do not hesitate to contact us via chat on the homepage, phone (360-546-9686), email (library@vancouver.wsu.edu) and in person at the Reference desk. We’re here to help!
