Access to Orbis, Borrow Direct, and InterLibrary Loan over the Holiday Recess

Due to a system upgrade, a search-only version of Orbis, the Library’s online catalog, will be in temporary use from December 28, 2008 through January 2, 2009. Readers will not be able to access saved searches, place requests, or view account information during this short period.

Access to Borrow Direct (BD) for searching and requesting will also be limited because of several system upgrades. BD will be unavailable on: Tuesday, December 23 from 2:00 p.m. until later that evening; the morning of Friday, December 26 until the morning of Sunday, December 28; and Monday, December 29 through Thursday, January 1, 2009.

BD will be available on Wednesday, December 24, Thursday, December 25, and Friday, January 2, 2009.

Borrow Direct books on the Bass Library hold shelf by Tuesday, December 23, can be picked up on recess days when Bass is open. Pickup at the other Borrow Direct locations will be available only if the location is open during the holiday recess.

InterLibrary Loan (ILL) services will be closed from Wednesday, December 24 through Thursday, January 1, 2009. During that time, readers may continue to submit requests, but they will not be processed until staff return to work on January 2. Incoming shipments of previously requested book also will resume on January 2.

ILL books on the Bass Library hold shelf by Tuesday, December 23, can be picked up on recess days when Bass is open. Pickup at other ILL locations will be available only if the location is open during the holiday break. Please consult location-specific web pages for detailed schedule information.

The Library apologies for any inconvenience.
