The implementation of our new online system, scheduled to be completed by Fall 1999, is progressing. The new and improved system will provide greater searching capabilities and online circulation. Until the new system is implemented in mid July, we will no longer enter new data into ClarK. We will, however, have some information about new materials available at the Reference Desk.
The software for the system has arrived,
has been loaded at the end of June, and extensive staff training is scheduled
for the week of July 12-16. Please be patient if everything isn't
"business as usual" during our time of transition. We will keep you informed
as implementation progresses.
