Tripod Classic Going Away

Tripod Classic is the search interface of our traditional library catalog. Because it is tied to our 20-year-old legacy integrated library system, Tripod Classic will retire on December 20, 2018.

To help ease the transition for loyal Tripod Classic users, we will provide a guide on how to replicate Tripod Classic search functionalities in the new Tripod interface. You can also make an appointment with a librarian to learn more about the basic functionalities of the new Tripod interface and how to run advanced search queries.
