Midcat unavailable Wednesday evening 8/31/2011

Midcat, the library catalog, will be unavailable for several hours starting around 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, August 31st while we upgrade to a new version of the operating system.

There are three options for identifying items in our collection when Midcat is down (thanks to Barbara for the Summon reminder):

  1. Using Summon search. (you won’t be able to see availability of items.)
  2. Searching NExpress (limit your search to Items located at Middlebury College.)
  3. Searching WorldCat (check the box that limits your search to Items in my library.)

    You can also find MIDCAT items using a Summon search. Summon has access to a copy of our catalog even when MIDCAT is unavailable. However, you won’t be able to see availability of items. Use the Summon search on the go/lib page or use go/summon
