Research Library Discontinues OPPIE

Find more information below.


The Research Library is discontinuing the OPPIE search tool as of December 31, 2012.

The decision to discontinue OPPIE was made in August 2011. A major driver was to refocus staff energies on three areas:

  1. Managing local collections (RASSTI, LA Authors, LDRD Connexion, and EPRR).
  2. Supporting bibliometric requests from laboratory scientists/managers.
  3. Exploring access to other kinds of scientific & technical information - datasets, images, and video.

Training (video, one-on-one) is available for these resources.

Many commercial products provide access to the data currently found in OPPIE:

Primo (, a new product recently released by the Research Library offers a different model of searching multiple scholarly resources. The Research Library provides access to commercial products like Primo, Web of Knowledge and other resources listed at the Find Articles/Databases page.

Researchers who have alerts in OPPIE will be notified separately.

Please contact with training requests, comments or concerns.
