IUCAT: Switch to new interface on May 5th

04/29/2013

Following our public beta this spring semester, we will be transitioning to the new discovery interface as the primary entry point to IUCAT on May 5th.

 

Important information:

 

After May 5th, iucat.iu.edu will point to the Blacklight interface. The current Sirsi interface (to be called IUCAT Classic) will be accessible at a new url: http://classic.iucat.iu.edu.

 

Permalinks to individual records in Sirsi will be redirected to point to individual records in the new interface (eg http://www.iucat.iu.edu/uhtbin/cgisirsi/x/0/0/57/5/3?searchdata1=6290898{CKEY}&searchfield1=GENERAL^SUBJECT^GENERAL^^&user_id=WEBSERVER

will be redirected to the new interface – that link will look like this: http:// iucat.iu.edu/catalog/6290898]

 

Permalinks to searches in Sirsi cannot be replicated through redirection, so they will be redirected to iucat.iu.edu, the new interface home screen.

 

Sirsi will continue to be available until we transition to Kuali OLE sometime next year.


More information about this transition and about the new IUCAT interface is available at https://blogs.libraries.iub.edu/iucatbeta/.
