Library Resources during COVID-19

New Library Search Interface is Here

Memorial Library is now using a new library search interface. ONESearch (using Primo VE) was adopted by all of SUNY as our Librarys’ new discovery service.

The new interface has several features that we think will appeal to faculty and students alike:

  • Mobile-friendly (re-sizable) design, integrated with MyRedDragon
  • Videos, books and databases integrated in one search tool
  • Easier to search for items in special locations such as TMC or Course Reserves
  • Allows users to save and label favorite searches or articles
  • Simpler access to books and other physical materials in the SUNY system

We have a LibGuide with information regarding its many facets. It can be found here –

The Library will also be doing a sandwich seminar Wednesday, September 11th in Jacobus Lounge of Brockway Hall from 12:30 – 1:30. There we will demonstrate the new ONESearch, its new features and how to obtain materials from other libraries.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) – Borrow from Other Libraries

You may have noticed that you can request Library material directly from the your search results in ONESearch in myRedDragon (mRD).

Please note that, in order to borrow from outside libraries, you still need to have an ILLiad account.

To set up up your own ILLiad account, click on “Interlibrary Loan” under Library Links and Resources on the left side of the Library Tab in myRedDragon. Sign in using your mRD ID & Password and follow the instructions given.

Once this is completed and approved, you will be able to successfully make & receive ILL requests.
