Ex Libris Central Discovery Index

CDI Coming April 6
The new Central Discovery Index (CDI) will be available in our Alma environment on April 6. The CDI combines our current Primo Central Index with ProQuest's Summon index to provide a massive new and streamlined index that helps to simplify workflows behind the scenes as well as to provide improved access to more full-text content in Search Everything.

We probably will not make the full switchover to the CDI until the end of the Winter 2020 semester since there is a small chance that some permalinks might be affected but will be working on the set up in Alma to make sure all our electronic collections are ready to go.

Search Everything Updates

APA 7 Added to Search Everything Citations Options
When you open an item in Search Everything and select the Citation option, APA 7 is now among the choices. APA 6 is still available too, along with MLA 7&8, Chicago/Turabian, and Harvard. The same caveat still applies to each that these are suggestions and should be checked for accuracy.
