Traverwood Branch Is Open

I wish to thank everyone who was inconvenienced by the closing of Traverwood for your patience and support. The floors are done, and they are beautiful, too! The branch re-opened this morning, August 28, at 9:00 AM.

We have backdated the returns at Traverwood to avoid fine accrual, but if after returning material you find accrued fines on your account, please call the Renewal Line at 327-4219 to have the fines removed.

The new aadl.org: week 2!

Thanks to all our patrons for such great feedback about the new catalog since its launch last week. We still have some things missing that we're working on, but a lot of changes have been made and fixes implemented based on your input, so please keep it coming. Here's what we're working on this week:

  • Personal Card Catalog will be back with all your saved cards intact
  • Adding sort by item type to the Checkout History screen
  • Adding reviews and summaries back onto item record pages
  • Fix for various Internet Explorer display issues including hidden copy lists
  • Better support for special characters in the search

...plus whatever you uncover. As a bonus, if you use Firefox or Internet Explorer 7 or 8, you might try out this new aadl search plugin, thanks to one of our patrons!

Thanks again for all your continued patience and feedback as we've made this significant transition. If you're looking for last week's catalog thread, you can find it under About Us :: Library News.

Traverwood Branch to be Closed August 20-27

The wood floors at Traverwood Branch are being sanded and sealed, and the work begins on Thursday of this week. We apologize for any inconvenience the closing of the branch will cause you and your family. After closing on Wednesday, August 19th at 9:00PM, all remaining items on the hold shelves at Traverwood will be moved Downtown, and will be available for pick up on Thursday. Hold requests for Traverwood will be available Downtown until the branch reopens on Friday, August 28 at 9:00 AM.

The return slots on the north side of the building will remain available and open, but the return bin in the garage will be unavailable during this week. Computer classes scheduled for this week at Traverwood will be relocated or rescheduled. Staff will contact those who have registered about changes in location or time.

We appreciate that this notice is short, and we do apologize. Thank you in advance for your patience. Please consider exploring other AADL library locations. They will be open regular hours and some very cool and smart people are working in them. They will enjoy helping you.

The new catalog offers significantly improved performance and usability as well as numerous small enhancements throughout the site. That said, there are sure to be glitches, temporarily missing features, or tweaks yet to come, so please take a look around and let us know what you find and what you think, either by commenting on this post, or by contacting us. Thanks for your patience, and thanks for using the library!

Update: some older web browsers may have trouble using the menu bar buttons. We're working on this; for now, you should be able to go straight to http://aadl.org/myaccount or http://aadl.org/catalog. Thanks for your patience!
