Catalog Updates Scheduled for August 17

To better serve our patrons, on the morning of Friday, August 17, CALS will update the software that supports our catalog and allows patrons to log in to various digital libraries, such as Overdrive and Freegal. During the update some of our services will be unavailable and you may not be able to log in to your account in others.

The following systems will be affected and may not allow account access until the upgrade is complete:

  • Self-check kiosks at all locations
  • Your myCALS library account
  • Bibliocommons (the library catalog)
  • Overdrive (e-books and audiobooks)
  • Freegal (downloadable and streaming music)
  • Hoopla (digital media)
  • rbDigital (audiobooks)

Staff will be able to check out and check in materials at our locations using an offline system, but they will not be able to access all of your account details until the update is complete. We anticipate the process to be completed and full functionality restored by the afternoon.

If you have questions or need assistance, please call 918-3000.
