Q. Why did the library system change in 2017?


In 2017, in an effort to better connect the ASU community to the information resources and digital tools researchers need, ASU Library implemented an integrated library services platform (LSP) to enhance and expand library services and operational workflows university-wide. 

Supporting ASU's commitment to innovation and accessibility, the new system enabled ASU Library to continuously refresh and unveil new digital tools that allow students and faculty to search, browse, share and customize materials in increasingly robust and intuitive ways.

Additionally, the new platform supports broad integration of information resources through our alignment with the University of Arizona (UA) and Northern Arizona University (NAU) as part of a tri-university collaboration to ensure greater fiscal responsibility and operational efficiency.
