Last Day to Use Aleph: Friday, Dec. 20
First Day to Use Alma: Monday, Dec. 30
Saturday, Dec. 21 - Sunday, Dec. 29 - Use Offline Circulation
Checking-out books: Use OFFLINE Circulation (backup system) for checking-out books. This can only be done on the middle basement desk computer (ULWAL-B03-BM). Click on the Offline Circ icon on the desktop.
Checking-in books: Do not check-in books! Place ALL returns onto book trucks and put a label on the truck "RETURNS". These will be held until Dec. 30 when we go live with Alma.
No transactions can occur anywhere else: While working the 2nd floor desk, refer patrons to the basement desk to check-out books. Hold returns at the 2nd floor desk. These should be brought to the basement desk and held with the other returns.
ILL's: No changes to processing Interlibrary Loan's. These will still be processed in ILLiad.
Dec. 30: Full-time staff will upload the Offline circ file and then the returns can be checked-in using Alma (backdate returns to Dec. 20).
Please ask if there are questions. Thanks for all of your help during this transition.
