UPDATE: The system migration has been rescheduled from February to mid-May. Specific dates and potential impact on our Library services will be posted later. UB (Universal Borrowing) Requests may be done through Research@UWW as usual.
All UW libraries, including UWW’s Andersen Library, are migrating from one library system to another during Winterim and the first part of Spring Semester. The system is used for circulation, cataloging, acquisitions, etc., but the migration affects all library users:
UWW students and staff must borrow books and DVDs from other UW libraries using ILLiad interlibrary loan from Thurs., Jan.8, through Mon., Feb. 16. Universal Borrowing through Research@UWW will be DOWN, and once the new system is functional it will have a new name.
UWW instructors must request Course Reserves needed during the first few weeks of Spring Semester by Fri., Jan. 9.
My Account will be frozen for a period starting in early Feb. (exact dates TBD). Although you will be able check out and return items, this information will not be synced with your online account during the migration period, so some of the My Account information may be inaccurate. You will not be able to renew materials. In addition, for about one week (TBD) Circulation will operate entirely in offline mode.
New materials won’t be processed until the new system is functional on Feb. 16. In addition, once the new system is up, Research@UWW will look a bit different! For example, Instead of a “Request” tab there will be a tab called “Get it” that you’ll click to make requests for items from other UW campus libraries. Permalinks from the previous Research@UWW will need to be updated with new links, e.g., http://uw-primo.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/WW:WW_VOY17051 is an example of a link that will no longer work because it contains the string WW_VOY.
Please bear with us! We’ll all be learning to navigate the new and improved system and Research@UWW together.
