Spring 2019: What you need to know about the new VIU Library catalogue
Welcome to our new library catalogue
We are pleased to announce that VIU Library launched a new library catalogue on May 1, 2019. The catalogue is your access point to your library account and loans. You can continue to access the catalogue from the library’s homepage (look for the catalogue link under “Find”).
Logging in for the first time
The first time you log into your library account, you will need to change your password. To do so, enter your email address in the online form and you will be sent an email with instructions on how to change your password.
About Our New Catalogue
Our new catalogue is part of an open source software program called Evergreen Integrated Library System. Evergreen helps library users and staff to manage all aspects of library borrowing. Over a thousand libraries in North America and beyond use Evergreen as their ILS and the Evergreen community continues to document, develop and improve the software with direct input from library staff.
Evergreen is hosted by BC Libraries Cooperative, a Canadian, member-owned, social enterprise made up of more than 200 library-related organizations across the country.
