I-Share Voyager

How to: Backdate a discharge transaction

When you backdate a discharge, Voyager uses the backdated date as the discharge date for the transaction, affecting the accrual of fines/fees.

Unique Title Counts FY 2016, Updated for I-Share Membership Changes

In July 2016, three libraries joined I-Share: Black Hawk College, Meadville-Lombard Theological School, and South Suburban College. Also, Kendall College exited I-Share. The effects of these changes were seen in the I-Share union catalog after the annual Unique Titles report was generated on July 1, 2016. As a result, some libraries unique titles counts may have changed as well. This updated report presents the outcomes of all four membership changes.

Borrowing and Lending Comparison FY 2016

UB Stat 2: Incoming ILL FY 2016

Incoming ILL represents items borrowed by your patrons from other I-Share libraries. An On-site borrowing transaction is one in which your patron visits the other library and completes the circulation transaction there. A Remote borrowing transaction is one in which your patron requests an item, the item is sent to your library, and is charged at your library.

UB Stat 1: Outgoing ILL FY 2016

Outgoing ILL represents items loaned by your library to each I-Share library and the ILLINET libraries. An On-site lending transaction is one in which the patron of the other library walks in to your library to complete the circulation transaction. A remote lending transaction is one in which the patron from the other library requests the item, the item is sent to their desired pickup location, and is charged there.

Unique Title Counts FY 2016

The Unique Titles column represents the number of titles in your library held by no other I-Share library.
*Uniqueness is determined counting bibliographic records visible in the I-Share union catalog having only one library's holding attached.
Records in the union catalog are de-duplicated according to duplicate detection rules and record quality hierarchies.

Library Record Counts FY 2016

The Bib column represents the number of bibliographic records in your library’s database. The Bibs w/o MFHDs column is a subset of that count and represents bibliographic records without associated MFHDs or holdings. The MFHD column represents the number of MFHD (MARC Format for Holdings Data) records in your library’s database. The MFHDs w/o items column is a subset of that count and represents MFHDs without associated item records. These could feasibly represent serial holdings that do not have barcoded items attached.

CARLI Webinar: Overview of the I-Share (UB) Resource Sharing Environment

Overview of the I-Share (UB) Resource Sharing Environment: Background, Relationships, and Processes.

The CARLI Office will be offering a webinar, “Overview of the I-Share Universal Borrowing (UB) Resource Sharing Environment: Background, Relationships, and Processes” on Thursday, August 4, from 1:30–2:30 pm.

Scheduled Downtime Sunday, June 26, 6AM-10AM

On Sunday, June 26, all I-Share/Voyager-related CARLI-supported systems will go offline for maintenance sometime between 6:00 AM and 10:00 AM.

The length of downtime is estimated to be 30 minutes.

I-Share/Voyager services include: VuFind local catalogs, the I-Share union catalog, WebVoyage local catalogs, Z39.50, Voyager staff clients, and Voyager MS Access Reporting.  (Voyager Offline Backup Circ may be used during the downtime, if needed.)

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.

System Downtime 2016-02-14

On Sunday, February 14th, all I-Share/Voyager-related CARLI-supported systems will go offline for maintenance sometime between 6:00 AM and 10:00 AM.

The length of downtime is estimated to be 30 minutes.

I-Share/Voyager services include: VuFind local catalogs, the I-Share union catalog, WebVoyage local catalogs, Z39.50, Voyager staff clients, and Voyager MS Access Reporting.  (Voyager Offline Backup Circ may be used during the downtime, if needed.)

This service interruption is necessary in order to perform operating systems maintenance on these servers.

Voyager Outage (Dec 4th, 2015)

We have a batch job that has been failing this week and we have a ticket open with Ex Libris. We did not realize that the failed jobs were generating 4GB core dumps. At 2:10AM this morning the core dumps pushed the disk volume to 100% capacity. At approximately 8:50AM we identified and removed the core dump files to restore service.

This failure did not generate any automated alerts, so we will need to revise our monitoring.
