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.

Please send any questions or comments to sanderson@stmartin.edu
