MnDOT Library Migrates to New Services Platform, Including Catalog

screen shot of sample search in new library catalogAfter months of preparation, MnDOT Library has successfully migrated to a new library services platform, including the online catalog available via www.mndot.gov/library. Other state agencies and Minnesota State Colleges and Universities libraries have completed the same migration to this platform, which is also used by the University of Minnesota libraries.

What does this mean for you?

  • The library homepage is still a starting place for searches. You will notice a different interface in the results screen.
  • The new catalog expands searching beyond MnDOT Library's physical collection. For example, there is the option to include journal articles from databases like Academic Search Premier in your results. The search can also be set to Library Catalog only, as in the image posted here.
  • Interlibrary loan service will continue for MnDOT employees as before. Let the library staff know if you need to borrow a book or request a full-text article that isn't owned by MnDOT.

Please contact the library with any questions about the new platform.

There are many ways to contact the library: by phone at 651-366-3791, by e-mail at library.dot@state.mn.us, by request form at Ask a Librarian, or in person (8:00 am – 4:30 pm, Monday – Friday). The library is located in Room 175 of the Transportation Building in St. Paul.
