Welcome to the DTC Library: New Library Online System

New Library Online System 

Primo

The Learning Resources & Technology Center implemented a new library online system on June 1, 2020. This online system is being shared among 55 other college/university libraries in the statewide consortium PASCAL (Partnership Among South Carolina Academic Libraries). A shared platform provides the greatest opportunity and flexibility for sharing resources and services that will support students, faculty, and staff at all our member institutions.

Primo provides for searching of print and electronic resources, a more intuitive user experience, and streamlined methods for ordering, describing, and checking out library materials. 

What Does this Mean For Students, Staff, Faculty, and other Library Users?

  • Beginning on June 1, 2020, Primo became the system used to discover articles, books, movies, music, manuscripts, and more in a single search. 

  • It provides a single, intuitive search interface for print and digital resources. 

  • Users can quickly find resources at DTC, as well as those available at 55 other South Carolina university/college libraries. 

  • Transfer students, faculty working and studying at multiple institutions, and distance education learners who across resources from more than one institution will no longer encounter a different search interface at each institution. 

What Happened to the old Library Catalog?

The old Library Catalog was retired on June 30, 2020. The Sirsi system was 15 years old and had not been updated by the vendor for over five years. It had reached its end-to-life.

How Do I Use the New System?

 Enter a search term or click a link to get to Primo. You will still be able to reach and refine your search (like in the old system), but the results will now be a more robust mix of print and electronic, even allowing you to switch to an articles search within the same website. If you have specific questions, or need help using the system, please call:
