Catalog Outage Starting July 10

UPDATE: As of July 21, the upgrade is complete, and the catalog is fully functional again.

The library catalog and circulation system will be upgraded in July, and there will be limited catalog functionality between July 10 and July 24:

  • From July 10 to July 12, the catalog will not be available at all — you will not even be able to search for books.  During that time, use WorldCat to determine if the library owns an item.
  • From July 12 to July 24, searches will be possible, but you will not be able to renew or request books via the catalog.  During that time, use Interlibrary Loan to request books from other libraries, including books held at other CUNY libraries.
  • Full functionality is scheduled to return on July 24.

To avoid problems, it’s a good idea to return or renew your checked-out books now. You will be able to check out books from the Graduate Center Library throughout the upgrade, but it will be a slightly slower transaction.
