Library System Outage Scheduled for May 2

The library's automated library system, including the online catalog, will be offline/inaccessible on Thursday, May 2 starting at approximately 1:45 p.m. While maintenance is being performed on the servers, the library will be using its back-up system, which necessitates the following guidelines:
  • You must have your library card (versus driver's license) in order to borrow items;
  • We will be unable to place holds during this time;
  • We will be unable to renew items during this time;
  • We will not be checking in items until after the system is back online;
  • We will be unable to take monies for overdue fines or fees on your account;
  • Online catalog - Holdings information and the ability to log in to update account information, place holds or search for items will be unavailable while the system is offline. During the outage, you can search for holdings via OCLC's WorldCat;
  • The mobile catalog will be unavailable;
  • The telephone renewal system will be unavailable;
  • Library public computers - For patrons who have never used the library's computer reservation system, only guest passes (vs. library card numbers) will be used during the outage. Please bring your library card or a photo ID to be issued a guest pass for Thursday, May 2.
The library's wireless Internet accesswebsiteonline databases and interlibrary loans will NOT be affected during the system outage.

If there are any changes to outage schedule, we will update this blog post as well as post updates to Twitter and Facebook. We appreciate your understanding while the library upgrades the system.
