ATTENTION LIBRARY USERS: Please return all Library Materials between May 5 – May 16

By , May 5, 2014 9:02 am

As a member of the Private Academic Library Network of Indiana (PALNI ), Butler University Libraries will migrate to a new library management system this summer. To assist in this process, we need all materials checked out in the current system to be returned and discharged.  Please return all books, CDs, DVDs, and scores between May 5 and May 16. If you wish to continue to use the materials, we will charge them out to you in the new system.

The new library system will continue to deliver renewal notices to you via email; however, when you receive a renewal notice, you will need to follow the renewal link in the email to affirm that you want to keep the item.   The renewal process in our old system was complicated, necessitating automatic renewals; however, the new library system empowers you to renew materials yourself.

Faculty, please note:  As part of the new system implementation, we are streamlining circulation policies to be consistent for both Irwin and the Science Library.  The faculty checkout period for regular book materials will continue to be six months, and the maximum number of renewals will be two renewals per item. This change will enable faculty to retain books for eighteen months.

Thank you for helping us to make the transition to our new system.  Questions?  Contact us at 940-9227 (Irwin Library) or 940-9401 (Science Library).

Thank you,

Faculty and Staff of the Butler University Libraries
