A new Library catalogue is coming
University of Waterloo Library is working with a group of Ontario universities to develop a common platform for discovering scholarly resources and collections. This will mean users will benefit from easier discovery and retrieval of resources across Ontario, and libraries will benefit from each other's expertise and work more closely to manage e-resources and preserve print collections. While there are many advantages to this approach, some of the ways that you currently access resources will change. Specifically, over the next few years, the TRELLIS catalogue will be retired by the software vendor and we will implement a new system in its place.
We want to understand how you currently use TRELLIS so that we can assess how the new system will meet your needs, and identify any potential support needs to help users adjust to these changes.
You can help us by participating in our 8-question survey about using the Library catalogue.
