New Library Systems Launched

As we announced in May, we have been working on a new system that will provide numerous benefits and expanded access to resources. We are happy to introduce the launch today of the new Library Search.

The main changes you will see now:

  • While the primary search box on the Library’s homepage continues to enable access to books, articles, videos, and more, the interface has changed.

  • Physical items owned by the SMC Library are now seamlessly integrated into search results with other resources we have access to. 

Give the new Library Search a try now! 

Coming August 29, 2022:

  • Rapido will be our new resource-sharing platform. This system includes more academic resources, including access to CSU and other academic collections.

In the meantime, ILLiad continues to be the interlibrary loan service we use for print books, articles and media.


Stay tuned for information, including video tutorials and live demonstrations in the coming months.


Please contact your subject librarian or the Reference Desk at if you have any questions.
