Library System Migration: Home

MOBIUS Transition

Transitioning from MOBIUS to FOLIO

SCC has been running on the same library system as the other MOBIUS libraries for over twenty years! Now, MOBIUS is moving to a new, modern, open-source library platform called FOLIO. FOLIO will be a fresh foundation for building new and innovative library services.

To ensure a smooth transition to the new library system, MOBIUS will temporarily suspend requesting material through the MOBIUS catalog and on-site borrowing at other MOBIUS libraries on April 18.

MOBIUS requests will be re-enabled on May 22, when the new MOBIUS catalog launches. On-site borrowing at other MOBIUS libraries will resume later.




Suspension of requesting material through the MOBIUS catalog and on-site borrowing at other MOBIUS libraries.

MAY 22

Launch day. The new library platform goes live with a new catalog and staff systems. Requesting through the new MOBIUS catalog resumes. On-site borrowing at other MOBIUS libraries and Pickup Anywhere service will resume at a later date.


FAQ for MOBIUS Users & Patrons

What is changing?

SCC and MOBIUS are moving to a new, modern library platform called FOLIO to enhance library services. The new platform will have the greatest impact on staff as the whole back end of managing the library will change, but it also means a new catalog and MOBIUS locate experience for our students and faculty.

The Locate or classic catalog will search our physical holdings, owned e-books, and streaming media. It will also be the new interface for searching MOBIUS consortia holdings.

Why a new library platform?

Our current library system was implemented over twenty years ago when the MOBIUS consortium was created. Since then, the library landscape has changed, and new opportunities are on the horizon. Moving to a new, modern library system alongside our partners at MOBIUS will enable us to lay a foundation for utilizing those opportunities.

Can I still check out books while the migration is taking place?

Yes, anyone with an SCC library account can check out books from our collection throughout the migration. Item requests and on-site borrowing from partner MOBIUS libraries will be suspended on April 18 until the migration is complete.

When is the deadline for requesting books through MOBIUS?

Requesting in the MOBIUS catalog will be suspended on the morning of April 18, so get all your MOBIUS requests in by April 17.

Do I have to return all of my books before a certain date?

No, apart from the regular due date, there is no particular date by which you must return your library books.

Will I be able to check out books at other MOBIUS libraries?

After the suspension of MOBIUS service on April 18, you cannot check out books on-site at other MOBIUS libraries or request that books be sent to other MOBIUS libraries for pickup. The functionality to support on-site MOBIUS borrowing and Pickup Anywhere is on the development roadmap for the new system and will be enabled sometime later.
