Announcing the new-and-improved SFU Library Catalogue

from left to right: older to newer computers and a mobile phone; a cat takes off in a rocket ship

What has changed?

The SFU Library Catalogue was upgraded on May 25th. 

The biggest change? The new Catalogue lets you search for journal articles at the same time as books, media, and other items in the Library. 

Other changes?

  • Better performance on mobile devices
  • Discover even more related books with the new Virtual Browse feature
  • Use your regular SFU computing ID to access your borrower account, place holds, and renew items (no more long barcodes to type!).

Using the new Catalogue

See our Library Catalogue search guide for tips, including for the powerful new basic search, browse search (for subject headings and more), and how to place holds.

Notes for advanced users

  • ​Library Search remains the Library's default search engine; the new Library Catalogue replaces and combines functions of our old Catalogue and Fast Search, which has been discontinued.
  • All existing checkouts, holds, and recall requests have been migrated to the new catalogue.
  • Bookmarks and direct links to the catalogue will continue to work.  


Launching May 25
