Interlibrary Loan Down

Next Wednesday, Thursday and Friday(May 22nd, 23rd, 24th) we will be a non-supplier on OCLC.
The “Request item through Interlibrary Loan” button will not work on our Catalog (WorldCat Local).moving

Our Illiad computer is going to Dublin Ohio to live there.  You won’t know the difference.
Just want to give you a heads-up so you can order before that time if you need to.

Thanks for your patience.

New Library Materials

New books and magazines or journals will be held in Technical Services and partial cataloging will be performed but item holding records will not be created. This means these items cannot be checked out or routed. After the migration everything should be back to normal and it will be business as usual. Until then please feel free to use anything that is currently in our catalog.

Media/Library Mailings

4.0 Content Standards for Media Mail

4.1 Qualified Items

Only these items may be mailed at the Media Mail prices:

a. Books, including books issued to supplement other books, of at least eight printed pages, consisting wholly of reading matter or scholarly bibliography, or reading matter with incidental blank spaces for notations and containing no advertising matter other than incidental announcements of books. Advertising includes paid advertising and the publishers’ own advertising in display, classified, or editorial style.

b. 16-millimeter or narrower width films, which must be positive prints in final form for viewing, and catalogs of such films of 24 pages or more (at least 22 of which are printed). Films and film catalogs sent to or from commercial theaters do not qualify for the Media Mail price.

c. Printed music, whether in bound or sheet form.

d. Printed objective test materials and their accessories used by or on behalf of educational institutions to test ability, aptitude, achievement, interests, and other mental and personal qualities with or without answers, test scores, or identifying information recorded thereon in writing or by mark.

e. Sound recordings, including incidental announcements of recordings and guides or scripts prepared solely for use with such recordings. Video recordings and player piano rolls are classified as sound recordings.

f. Playscripts and manuscripts for books, periodicals, and music.

g. Printed educational reference charts designed to instruct or train individuals for improving or developing their capabilities. Each chart must be a single printed sheet of information designed for educational reference. The information on the chart, which may be printed on one or both sides of the sheet, must be conveyed primarily by graphs, diagrams, tables, or other nonnarrative matter. An educational reference chart is normally but not necessarily devoted to one subject. A chart on which the information is conveyed primarily by textual matter in a narrative form does not qualify as a printed educational reference chart for mailing at the Media Mail prices even if it includes graphs, diagrams, or tables. Examples of qualifying charts include maps produced primarily for educational reference, tables of mathematical or scientific equations, noun declensions or verb conjugations used in the study of languages, periodic table of elements, botanical or zoological tables, and other tables used in the study of science.

h. Loose-leaf pages and their binders consisting of medical information for distribution to doctors, hospitals, medical schools, and medical students.

i. Computer-readable media containing prerecorded information and guides or scripts prepared solely for use with such media.

New interlibrary loan start link

This year OCLC is changing some things.

This means we will change a few things too.

Go here:   (Notice there is NO WWW. in the address)

When you search this catalog you will see our materials first.  To see if we own or someone else owns look at the green text.

We own this one:

We will refer to another library for this one:

Also you will see some new ways to filter your results in the left margin.

The only password needed is the one you use here:

From there it will be the same.

We are going to change over this summer as it looks now.

December 2013 everyone must have changed over or they will not be able to use our system.

This is just so you will know where we are headed.

Please if you have questions email or call us.
