Alma & Primo VE

This site keeps the UVic community up-to-date on the upcoming changes to UVic Libraries' search interface. On June 28, 2022, the catalogue and search interface will be moving to a new library management platform called Alma and Primo VE.

Welcome to a new era. We have launched the New Library Search!

On June 28th, 2022, UVic Libraries implemented an all-in-one search box. The new Library Search offers an integrated discovery interface with options to search across the entire collection, or to limit only to certain types of resources like books, journals, electronic, or print.

Over the next few weeks some functions may not behave as expected. Please help us by reporting issues to Our team will be working hard to to ensure our data is correct.

For  documentation and instruction materials to teach students and faculty how to navigate basic and complex searches in this new discovery interface, visit :

The classic catalogue searches by item title, author, and subject. We are announcing it is getting a makeover and will no longer look the same after June 28, 2022
