Because our current library software is no longer being developed, I’ll be moving the library’s records to a new library management software during exam week. In order to minimize the chances of records getting lost in the process, all library materials should be returned by Friday, January 18.

If you currently have library books or CDs checked out, I’d sincerely appreciate their return by the 18th. As long as the data migration goes smoothly (which it should!), circulation of library materials should be back to normal by the first day of 2nd semester: January 31.

Once the new system is up and running, you should notice a few improvements. Although most of the changes impact what I do behind the scenes, one change you’ll notice is that the new library catalog will only be web-based instead of there being a parallel application installed on the desktops around the school. You’ll click on the same links from the school’s home page or library’s blog to access the catalog, and I’m confident that you will find the new search screen easier to use and more effective in executing your search than our current one.

Thank you for doing your part to make this transition a smooth one!
