Library Catalog (WorldCat) and Databases Down (OCLC server error)

Attention:

Starting around noon today, the library catalog (WorldCat) and databases became inaccessible due to an error with our library vendor’s servers (OCLC). Our circulation software has also been affected so that books cannot currently be renewed online. We are still able to check books in and out at the front circulation desk, but we will not be able to provide account updates about fees. We are aware of these problems and have contacted OCLC about the access issues.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and trust that access will be returned within a few hours. We will issue an update when normal operation of our systems has been restored.

Thank you for your understanding and patience!

Applicants Needed – Library Digital Resources Peer Group

Fuller Library is looking for 5 – 6 individuals to form the Library Digital Resources Peer Group. This informal group will work closely with the Head of Electronic Services in the procurement of new electronic resources for the David Allan Hubbard Library. The group will “meet” 3 times a year, the first usually being one week after the quarter begins. The initial meeting is to receive a list of resources to peruse and try out on your own time, with a deadline of submitting feedback being two weeks before finals.

We need people from the following areas / groups: SOP, SIS, SOT, Korean / Spanish speakers, on-campus groups, students, faculty, and staff. Alumni may be added in the future, depending on if we can locate eResources that allow for outside current status.

If you are interested, please fill out this application by September 6. Email lib-systems@fuller.edu with any questions you may have!
