I-Share Catalog Changes

Buswell Library will return to an earlier version of the I-Share Catalog due to a large number of functional issues with our new catalog upgrade. We are grateful for the user feedback we received regarding these issues and we apologize to any users who experienced difficulties in searching for books or placing I-Share lending requests over the last few weeks. We will continue to monitor user feedback to help ensure that library visitors have the best experience possible.
