Requesting Back to Normal

Late Friday, January 9th, the UW Libraries decided to put our library management system implementation on hold while we work with our vendor to bring the new UW Request functionality up to the level of service you have come to expect from us.  We do not have more information at this time, but will share it to a wider audience when the timeline has been revised.

Requesting Library Materials

We are undergoing a system migration, and that is temporarily changing how you will request library materials.  We will be processing all requests through Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad) until Feb. 16th.  We’ve made that as easy as we can for you… you can get there in Search@UW through either the Find It link or Locations link under your results.  The Find It menu will display a link  to ILLiad, which will work just like a normal ILL request.

But if you are using Mozilla Firefox, you might not see those features we have put in place to help you.  If you do not see a bright yellow message at the top of the Search@UW window, you probably need to clear your browser cache.  How to clear Firefox cache.

If that doesn’t help, please contact the library at libraryweb@uwgb.edu.

Library System Transition: Dates & Deadlines

logoOn February 9, 2015, all UW System Libraries will be transitioning to a new library management system. This change will mainly impact library staff, there should only be minimal changes in how you discover and access library materials. In fact, the new system will make it easier for you to access a wide variety of resources.  Library staff are working hard to make the transition to the new system as seamless as possible for our users. Updates, deadlines, and information about the transition can be found here:  http://libguides.uwgb.edu/newsystem
