Migrating Search Now Bookbags to My Library Record
Search Now Bookbag Users –
Now that the Texas A&M University Libraries has our new Search, we will be cancelling our old “Search Now” service on or before the end of August. Our new Search offers very similar functionality including: a single search of our catalogs, institutional repository, and journal articles; direct links to full text; links to Get it for me when full text is not available; and the ability to save your searches and results to your “e-Shelf”.
In preparation for shutting down “Search Now” bookbags, on May 14th , we will be gathering all the bookbag data from your “Search Now” bookbag and making it available to you in your My Library Record. You will then be able to download your bookbag into either the Endnote or RefWorks citation management software.
You do not need to do anything immediately as your citations will remain available in My Library Record for at least a year. This email is to inform you of the upcoming changes. We will send you an email when your citations are available in My Library Record and will be providing a Research Guide with instructions on how to download your bookbag. The citations will remain available in My Library Record for at least a year.
Please note: This will not affect your LibCat or MSL Catalog bookbags.
Let us know if you have any questions or concerns,
