Library System Scheduled Outage

Hello WesternU Community,

On October 4, 2016 the Pumerantz Library will be performing an upgrade to our Online Catalog (https://whsl.sirsi.net/).

The upgrade is scheduled to begin at 5am and should be complete by 11am.

During this time, the Online Catalog and its features will be unavailable (item lookup, online renew, online holds, item due notices, etc.). Electronic Resources on the Library’s webpages will be available during this outage. Check-in and Check-out of materials can be done in person, item renewals and holds will be available in person or by phone. Physical items can be looked up using the Pumerantz Library Discovery Service on the Library’s homepage, but the item’s location may not be available. Library Staff can assist you in finding physical materials. If you have any questions or concerns about this outage, please contact the library at 909-469-5323 or email libsupport@westernu.edu.

Thank you for your patience while we improve our library systems.
