June 17

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

Alma/Primo

Notice of Migration of Murray Library’s Integrated Library Software System
Occurring June 25-29

After 20 years with our current system, the library is moving into the cloud with Ex Libris’ Alma/Primo product. Our data will start migrating over into the new system June 9. This means that we are unable to process any purchase requests or rush processing requests for new materials after June 8.

On Friday, June 25 until Tuesday, June 29, our circulation information, including holds, interlibrary loans, fines and fees, will not be available as we move to the new system. We will be able to check materials out and you may return your items at this time, but the library catalog will not reflect this information until we go live.

During this time, the current library catalog will still be available. If you have saved lists in the library catalog, you will need to download or print them, as they will not carry over into the new system. If you have created links to materials that take you into the library catalog (NOT links into databases), those links will no longer work.  Those links will have to be established again once our new system is up and running. The good news is, that in our new system, there is an easy button to copy the permalink. If you need help with this, please contact your liaison librarian.

The plan is for us to be up and running with the new system Tuesday, June 29.  Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we make this improvement to the services we offer.
