Information Update - Fall 2003
This year brings big changes for all of us here in the Library.
As previously announced, the Library is stepping into the new Millenium-a
new, sophisticated online library software system created by Innovative
Interfaces Inc. While librarians, faculty, students and staff are
getting used to the look and search capabilities of this new, powerful
interface, the Library's Acquisitions staff is also learning
the "ropes" of ordering and receiving items on this
Usually, Library Department Budget Allocation letters are mailed
out by the 10th of August. However, many faculty members are used
to seeing items they requested "on order" or even "available" in
the Library's online catalog before that date.
Due to the change in Library systems there has been a slight delay
in ordering as the Acquisitions department has waited for the new
system to "go live," which occurred on 1 August 2003,
and has worked on configuring the new system to perform the ordering
functions of its predecessor, before placing orders for the 2003-04
With this in mind, if you do not see a title that you ordered a while
ago that you need for this semester, do not hesitate to contact us,
so that we can give your item top priority.
For order inquiries,
drop an e-mail to Narda Tafuri, Acquisitions Librarian: firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at x7811.
Thank You for Your Patience!
We thank you for your patience and support while we make our transition!
