New catalog system construction causes temporary delays

The library is working to implement a new catalog named OskiCat, which will replace our current catalogs, GLADIS and Pathfinder.

The transition to OskiCat requires a complex process of migrating and merging databases.  While this is taking place, between March 1 and April 20:  

  • We will be unable to add new items or update records in GLADIS and Pathfinder.
  • We will be unable to order new materials.  Please feel free to continue recommending items for purchase during this time.
  • GLADIS and Pathfinder will still be searchable and will still display the current status of items (checked out, etc.)
  • Unbound journals and other serials will still be available as usual.
