Library Catalogue Upgrade January 20-22, 2009
In order to load upgrades and implement enhancements, The UVic Libraries Online Public Access Catalogues, Law and Main (OPAC), will be unavailable from Tuesday, January 20 – Thursday, January 22, 2009.
The Main catalogue, the Law catalogue and the Reserve system will be unavailable for consultation while the upgrade is in progress. However, users will still be able to search the collection using the Libraries’ backup catalogues and reserves list:
These URLs will be accessible from the Library’s home page during the upgrade. Please note that the back-up catalogues will not include the circulation status of items in the collection.
All other resources on the UVic Libraries Website and Law Library website will be available.
Library materials will continue to be signed out at the Loan Desks.
Assistance is available at the Loan Desks, the McPherson Library Help Desk (telephone 250-721-8274) and the Diana M. Priestly Law Library Reference Desk (Telephone 250-472-5023).
We apologize for any inconvenience this service disruption may cause. We look forward to providing improved service and functionality in the upgraded online catalogue.
