June 14th until upgrade is finished in early July:

My Account feature will be frozen and not updated.




It will not reflect:

       Books checked out
       Books checked in




And the Renew a Book function will not work.




It will be frozen. You can look, but you can’t touch.

Books that are returned will not be discharged. . In other words, once a book is
returned: Nobody Else Can Check It Out. (Because it can’t be discharged, it would
still show that it was checked out to the original student.) They will be staged until the
upgrade is done in early July, then they will be discharged. Once the upgrade is finished
all of the returned books will be discharged as though they were returned on June 14th

The Library Catalog will not be updated. Remember that the catalog will not reflect
anything checked out or returned. This will affect the other libraries in the system also.
To see a complete list of libraries go to: http://www.carli.illinois.edu/members.php or call
the Reference Desk: 708-534-4111. The only way to be sure we have the book is to go to
the shelf. You can call ahead to the Reference Desk; if we are not busy we can check the
shelf while you are on hold. If we are busy, we will take your number and call you back.
Please do not call with more than 1 or 2 titles. 708-534-4111




How will this affect checking out and returning books?

      You can still check out books with your GSU Library ID.
      The procedure for checking out Reserves will not be affected.
      The procedure for checking out Telecourses will not be affected.
      You can Return books (not discharged until upgrade is done in early July)
      Request books (using interlibrary loan forms online or by paper)
      You can still check out video and audio tapes for 1 week. Once they are returned
       they will be held with the books and discharged when the upgrade is finished.
       (this does not refer to Telecourses)
