New Online Catalog Coming in April

During the week of April 16, the Library (and the consortium we belong to) will be transitioning to a new online catalog. You’ll see a new look as you search for library materials, and will be introduced to new features.

What to Expect

Θ Items returned from April 14-April 17 will not be checked in.
Θ Due dates will automatically be extended. We encourage you to keep the materials until we are live on the new system.
Θ Make sure to bring your library card with you to the library. We may not be able to look up your account to check out materials to you without your card.
Θ Results in the catalog may not be up-to-date. Please call us to confirm that an item is on the shelf.
Θ Cardholders will be unable to log into the catalog so holds will not be able to be placed.
Θ Your library PIN or password will transfer over to the new system in all CAPS. For example, if your PIN is currently mypin1, it will become MYPIN1.
Θ Your reading history and lists will not be transferred. Ask staff for assistance in printing your reading history and/or lists if you would like.
