Coming soon — Omni, a new search and discovery tool!

We in the Library are pleased to announce the  December 12 launch of Omni, the new academic search tool presented by the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) will replace the Quick Search Tool on the Durham College Library website, with additional services to follow in 2020.  Read more here.

Omni is powered by a collaborative system of team members and resources from Ontario Tech University and 13 other Ontario university libraries. Read press release here.

What does this mean for you?

An Intuitive Experience: Fast, intuitive, and seamless, the Omni platform gives you access to your library’s resources so you can make the best use of  your time. Whether you’re on campus, at home, or on the go,  your Omni experience remains  easy to navigate and responsive.

Why a new library system? 

Our current library system is more than 20 years old and in need of replacement. Omni, which employs Ex Libris’s Alma library software system and Primo VE discovery system, will make it easier to manage and work within our large and increasingly digital collection of books, journals, and databases.
