I-Share Call Slips during Winter Break

With the end of the semester and holiday closures fast approaching, all I-Share libraries need to remember to extend the dates for all of your library’s call slip queues to cover the days your library will be closed.
 
The more libraries that follow the directions in the Best Practice, the better service all patrons receive.

Please contact the with any questions.

Applying Server Updates (Oct 30)

This Sunday, October 30th between 6AM and 10AM we will patch and reboot operating systems. Most security updates can be applied without rebooting, but the changes we are making require a server restart. We are also going to take this opportunity to patch the Oracle Database software as well.

Most server outages will be brief since a restart takes less than a minute. However, the larger Voyager and Oracle servers could be down for around a half-hour.

UIUC Firewall Maintenance

The UIUC Campus Firewalls will be upgraded which could cause network outages for anyone off-campus connecting to CARLI services.

Network staff have indicated that the outages should be brief during this window.

Role of I-Share Liaisons Webinar

A 30 minute live webinar covering the role and responsibilities of serving as a CARLI I-Share liaison.
 
Description: Every I-Share library designates one individual to serve as the primary contact for I-Share related communications to and from the CARLI Office. Whether you are a new or experienced liaison, and whether your library is new to I-Share or a long-time participant, this webinar will cover material that is relevant to you.
 

Vu Find 3 Available for Testing

CARLI staff are pleased to announce that we now have VuFind 3 available for I-Share library staff testing and review. Please see the information below on how to access VuFind 3 and how to send us feedback about it. We look forward to hearing from you!
 
VuFind 3 is significantly different from VuFind 0.6 that is currently in use for I-Share libraries, and should be considered a new system, rather than an upgrade to the version of VuFind now in use with I-Share.
 

I-Share Web-based Reporting Launched

CARLI is pleased to announce Voyager Web Reports Beta, a new web-based reporting tool designed by CARLI staff to provide an easy way for I-Share library staff to run reports against their Voyager databases without the need to install the Oracle/ODBC client and use MS Access.  Results can be viewed, sorted, and searched in HTML format directly in your web browser, or they can be downloaded in CSV format for local manipulation.  The reports come from the I-Share Shared SQL for Voyager Reports, or from the stock set of queries provided by Ex Libris in Voyager's default Reports.mdb file.

Emergency Patching at 11PM Tonight (Feb 17, 2016)

There is a new glibc vulnerability (CVE-2015-7547) that affects most Linux systems. It may allow remote code execution on the servers, so I will patch and reboot all CARLI servers starting at 11PM tonight (Wednesday, Feb 17).

For most servers this will be a quick reboot. For Voyager, it will probably be down for about 20 minutes while the Oracle database server is rebooted.

Upgrade to Voyager 9.1.1 is Complete

The CARLI Office is pleased to report that the upgrade to Voyager 9.1.1 is complete.

I-Share Voyager Down for Software Upgrade

I-Share Voyager and its VuFind catalog interface are down this weekend (June 12-15) while CARLI staff upgrade its software to Voyager version 9.1.1 .

Features of the CARLI_Reports_2015.mdb File

Those who use Microsoft Access to run reports on data in the Voyager system will be familiar with the reports.mdb file. This is the file that you link to your Voyager database, after which it gives you easy access to the data in your database. CARLI maintains a custom version of this file that has many improvements over the default “reports.mdb” file that is automatically downloaded into the C:\Voyager\Reports folder.

Voyager 9.1.1 Upgrade: Batch Job Delays

June 12, 2015

This is just a reminder that due to the Voyager upgrade to version 9.1.1 this weekend (June 12-15), batch jobs will be suspended until Monday night, June 15. This means that there will be no circulation notices and no UB request promotion (promoted call slips) until Tuesday morning.

Additionally, any bibliographic record you save in Cataloging today or update in WorldCat using a bulk import production mode (e.g., "Express mode") will not appear in your local VuFind catalog until Tuesday, or in the I-Share union catalog until Wednesday.
