Please Plan Ahead: Search and Request for books and other Libraries items unavailable during October Break

September 28th, 2021


A simplified, multi-campus search and request system for books and other physical items in our Libraries collections is coming to Purdue and its regional campuses beginning Spring 2022. This new Fulfillment Network system will allow Libraries patrons from PWL, PNW, and PFW to locate and request physical items from libraries on all three campuses through a single search interface.

To allow completion of technical requirements related to this critical project, search and request functionality for physical items via the Libraries website will be out of service beginning Friday, October 8th at 6 PM.  Search and request functionality should be restored within 48 hours, during which time most library locations will be closed for October Break. 

This outage will not impact “My Account” functionality or electronic resource access.  Physical item results and availability information will be the only records affected. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to improve our systems and services for all Boilermakers.
