This month, the Oxford College Library launched our new website! We have set up redirects so that any of Oxford College Library's old URLs are appropriately redirected to their new URLs. 
Featuring the same design as the University Libraries website, the release helps the Libraries move one step closer to its long-term goal of bringing all Emory University Libraries, locations, and services under one unified web presence in an effort to improve the user experience.

In February, the Business, Health, and Rose libraries will launch a preview of their newly redesigned sites with a final production release scheduled for March 2022

Library Search: The New Library Catalog

Library Search is the new search tool currently configured to search Emory University Libraries Catalog including books, e-books, videos, articles, and some digital media. Future phases of development will incorporate other data sources including Articles Plus, digital repositories, and the Emory University Libraries website.  

Library Search is developed in Blacklight, which is an open-source Ruby on Rails "engine" that provides a basic discovery interface for searching an Apache Solr index. The product development is part of a multi-phase project that started in 2019. 

Why the name "Library Search"? 
Users expressed the desire for a very basic name that describes the functionality of the tool. Eventually, Library Search will be configured to search many resources provided by the libraries, including data in digital repositories and the website.  

Emory Libraries are committed to the principles of universal design and strive to provide equitable services online and in our spaces. We assess and enhance the usability and accessibility of digital interfaces on an ongoing basis. For questions or further information, please use the feedback form on the Library Search page, or consult Emory’s Department of Accessibility Services.

You are welcome to send questions or provide feedback on Library Search by emailing the team at You can also visit the FAQ guide for more information

The library will be putting on a series of short, "mini workshops" this semester for students. The workshops will focus on how to utilize Zotero, as well as how to bring sources into conversation with each other (synthesizing information). More information will be provided as we get further into the semester.  Faculty interested in offering attendance at these workshops as an extra credit opportunity should contact their personal librarian.
