While we have great news on Alma moving forward, life and work continues in Voyager. Specifically, we have reached the time of year where libraries perform Fiscal Period Close (Rollover). This year, we will be hosting an open webinar with refreshers on the process and the reports involved. Please join CARLI staff at and get your questions answered. The session will be recorded for those unable to meet at this time.

For those already familiar with the FPC process, please note the following reminders:

We schedule FPCs M-F before 8AM or after 4PM, and we require a minimum of 48 hours’ notice for scheduling your Rollover. This will ensure the appropriate staff is available to run the FPC process at the requested time.

You may request a Fiscal Period Close at our Work Request Online site,

The CARLI website includes resources for reviewing the fiscal period reports before and during the rollover. For a video discussing the reports, look to

Please don’t hesitate to contact with any questions!

The CARLI Preservation Committee is pleased to sponsor two Conservation Lab Open Houses in Springfield on June 7, 2019, from 9:30am to 3:30pm at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum (ALPLM) and the Illinois State Military Museum. 

This past year, the CARLI Preservation Committee has focused on the preservation of non-book materials within library collections. They are creating a website “Beyond the Book: Preserving you Non-Book Collections” that includes information on the preservation of textiles, maps and blueprints, board games and materials with multiple parts, paintings, and photographs and glass plate images with more topics coming as the group continues to share their expertise throughout the remainder of this fiscal year.    

As an extension of this topic, the committee invites participants to learn how two institutions preserve some of their non-book materials including storing their 3D artifacts and how staff at the Military Museum conserve battle flags.

The event will begin at the ALPLM Conservation Lab. Attendees will move their vehicles to the Illinois State Military Museum after lunch. 

A box lunch (including a six-inch sub, chips, water, and a cookie) will be provided for attendees by CARLI.
