Library Migration Information

A guide to requesting and other service changes during our consortial migration in June and July of 2021.

Library Services & Resources

General Information

We're migrating! Bethel's long-term library consortium is moving on to bigger and better things--CLIC will disband this summer  when  we and our CLIC partner libraries join the MnPALS consortium and move our library system to a new server. 

What does this mean for you?  CLICsearch, the search tool found front and center of our library page, will change its name to LibSearch, but will largely look and feel the same. You’ll see most of these changes the week after the July 4th holiday, but you may see smaller changes within CLICsearch along the way. Questions? We’re happy to provide more details. Just ask.

Requesting Items During the Migration


Requesting via CLICsearch will not be available June 9-July 7. You WILL be able to search and find materials in CLICsearch, and electronic books and articles will remain available. You may also continue to check out Bethel books, videos, and other materials. For other requesting needs, please use ILLiad, our interlibrary loan system. For more details, see below. 

  • What if I have books that are due during this time?
    • Due dates will be extended during this period. If you need to renew anything after July 7, you will be able to do that from within LibSearch.
  • Can I place a hold on Bethel materials during this time?
    • Yes, but you'll need to contact us in order to do that. 
  • Can I request items from other libraries during this time?
    • Yes. Use ILLiad to do that. 
  • Can items still be mailed to my home address?
    • Yes, but you'll need to contact us in order to do that.
  • Can items be sent to the Anderson Center for pick-up?
    • Yes, but you'll need to contact us in order to do that.
  • Can I check my CLICsearch account online during this time?
    • No.
  • What happens to my CLICsearch account once we migrate to LibSearch?
    • Your account will transfer to LibSearch, and will look and feel the same as you're used to in CLICsearch.
