Library

The Library and Web Services (LWS) division supports and promotes library- and web-related systems across campus.

Library Services provides support through web technologies and electronic resources to Copley Library, the Legal Research Center, as well as many satellite locations that track equipment. The department works with related library units to investigate, acquire and facilitate access to the library's electronic resources. Library Services provides access, support, and troubleshooting for the integrated library system, Innovative Interfaces, Inc. Sierra.  This includes the online discovery platform, Encore Duet, which retrieves materials in all formats, full-text articles, and digital collections. We maintain the San Diego Circuit service, provide enriched content to records, and support the mobile on-line catalog. In addition, we evaluate new products, and troubleshoot and answer questions regarding existing systems, as well as implementing new products and features for USD's library community.
