The end (of Trellis) is upon us

Do you still use Trellis, our old or 'classic' catalogue?

When University of Waterloo Library moved its catalogue to Primo many years ago, our old catalogue - Trellis - stuck around. In December 2019, the Library will be moving to a new version of Primo, as part of the Collaborative Futures project. Learn more about Collaborative Futures.

The great news: Collaborative Futures will see 14 Ontario university libraries join forces to share one catalogue - vastly expanding the resources available to our users.

The (not so) bad news: Trellis is going away.
