One Less Password to Remember!

Interlibrary loan just got a bit easier!

Scot Harrison, Dean of the O'Grady Library, announced that ILLiad, Saint Martin's interlibrary loan management system, has been updated to accept your standard SMU login information rather than requiring a separate username and password.

Now when you click a link in Saints search or any of the academic databases to request an item or click the direct link to ILLiad on the library's homepage, you will be taken to the login screen below:

From here, simply enter your regular SMU login information.  

Your ILLiad requests and history should be readily available to you.  First-time users will be taken to a new registration screen and will need to provide a minimum amount of information.  If you have any questions please contact Stefanie Gorzelsky, the circulation manager, or Joyce Hall, interlibrary loan processor.

Ever Struggle with Printing in the Library?

Thanks to the efforts of Jessilyn Dagum (SMU sophomore), Stefanie Gorzelsky, and Serin Anderson, the library has newer, easier to use instructions for the printer on the main level.

Stefanie Gorzelsky, Serin Anderson, and Jessilyn Dagum stand by their newly-designed posters in the main-level library print alcolve.
Posters are being created for the printers on the upper and lower levels, which have different machines.

Changes to Saints Search

Saint's Search on the O’Grady Library home page will have a small update within the next 24 hours.

Currently the Saints Search system (http://saintssearch.stmartin.edu) does not require a login.

However, logging in provides a number of benefits including:
  • Retrieval of all possible results for a search.  Some databases – Scopus and MLA are good examples – require that a searcher be logged in to see citations.
  •  Access to “My Account” to see all library materials checked out and O’Grady/Summit requests.
  •  Use of the e-Shelf, a handy tool for saving citations with a single click.
  • Ability to request items through Interlibrary loan and Summit.

To ensure that all students, faculty and staff see and experience a full range of resources and functionality in Saints Search, we will be implementing an automated sign-in feature.  Running a search will look exactly the same, but a sign-in box will appear that looks like the image below.  All current faculty, staff and students will simply need to sign in with their normal network ID and password.
