The Voyager library management system is scheduled to be down on Monday, March 4th in order to update the server’s operating system. This operation should take about 4 hours to complete, but the entire day is reserved as a maintenance window. During this time the following services will be unavailable:
- The Online Catalog
The online databases and LibGuides, however will still be available.
The new nine-digit ID numbers used by PowerCampus have now been loaded onto the Library’s circulation system. Since the older eight, seven, or ten digit cards that have been in use for many years can no longer be read, and until everyone obtains a new card, the staff asks that everyone please be patient during checkout while we enter the card information manually.
When the University updated its back office systems to PowerCampus, it was necessary to change the ID numbers for students, faculty and staff. As you may well know by now, that means that everyone has to get updated ID cards. In order for the Library’s circulation system to read those cards, we must update all current records. The library staff has worked out a method which will allow most student ID numbers to be updated by a series of batch jobs. This means that the library staff will have to manually update some student and all faculty and staff ID records.
Because the Library could not begin this process until shortly before the new University ID cards would be issued, there will be a period of time during which we will not be able to read your ID card at the Circulation Desk. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience or delay this may cause and crave your patience in this matter.
