UPDATE: Catalog changes coming in May

Earlier this year we notified you about an upgrade to our Integrated Library System (ILS). The implementation process is now in full-swing and the finish line is in sight. As a reminder, the most noticeable effect of this project will be a new look to our catalog.

On May 26th, all links for the CSU Catalog and GIL Express Catalog will redirect to a unified interface. An additional feature of the new system is the ability to personalize your search experience by signing in with your Loch ID.

Below are upcoming key dates for our implementation:

4/24 – 5/26 Library catalog becomes read-only and no new items will be added to the collection.

5/5 – 5/26 GIL Express requests suspended

5/19 – 6/6 Patron records become read-only and will require manual update when needed. Please allow additional time to borrow materials.

5/22 – 5/25 Circulation becomes read-only and all item borrowing will be manual. Please allow additional time to borrow materials.

5/26 Migration complete. Everything works exactly as it should. 🙂

We look forward to providing you with improved ways to access our materials. However, with a project this big, issues will occur. Thank you for your patience as we look forward to improving our service to each of you.
