Workflows circulation will be going offline starting at 6pm on Thursday, Oct 6th. Aleph will be coming up at 10am Monday. Final circulation-related loads to ExLibris will be happening during the downtime.
Patrons will not be able to request items, renew items, and check their account information while circulation is offline. The OPAC will still be available for searching.
Offline circulation will be available at all circulation desks Thursday 6pm to Monday at 10am. The self check machines (Woodruff and Chem) will be down until they are reconfigured next week.
Email accounts with the @libcat1.cc.emory.edu domain will be changing over to a new @mail.library.emory.edu domain on Monday morning. 78888 will assist with Thunderbird configuration if needed. Oliver is changing the hours handouts and I will update web pages as needed.
About this project
Opportunity (Library Staff SPEAK):
Emory University Libraries are presently using an Emory-hosted instance of the SirsiDynix Symphony ILS. We have an opportunity to simultaneously improve core systems integration (and therefore ultimately the end-user experience), streamline support operations (and therefore operational costs), and save money (in reduced licensing fees), by migrating our ILS to a hosted instance of the Ex Libris Aleph ILS, as we have migrated related systems (SFX and Primo) to Ex Libris hosted instances.
Opportunity (end-user SPEAK):
Emory University Libraries are changing discoverE and EUCLID to improve searching and save you time. The look of both discoverE and EUCLID will change on October 10, 2011 during Fall break, but the basic functions will remain the same.
Faster Search ♦ Fewer clicks ♦ More Material ♦
10/10 is the "go live" date but our improvments are an iterative process; we will seek your input on a continuous basis as we move forward enhancing our search and discovery tools.
Feel free to USE/reuse GRAPHICS....
Please add call-outs to your library's home page (in DRUPAL these are listed as ALEPH SEARCH and ALEPH FIND).
You can also share the discoverE mock-up
