All public services should be working as normal. Thank you for your patience during this upgrade! Chris 4:00 p.m. May 27, 2016
If you frequent the Arrowhead Library System website, www.alslib.info, you will notice we have had a lot of change in the last few months and there are still a lot more changes to come!
Our next big change will be moving all of the data in our catalog to a more secure, up to date storage facility. While it isn’t a big change for the public, it is a process that is going to require our system to be down for a couple of days.
On May 24th and 25th our catalog will not be available but our libraries will still be able to provide some services. Library events will continue as usual and staff will be able to check out items on our back up system. However, the catalog is not going to be available online for public access or in libraries for library staff to look up information, place requests, or renew items for you.
You WILL be able to access eBooks and eMagazines through our OverDrive Collection http://arrowhead.lib.overdrive.com. And the statewide EbooksMN collection www.ebooksmn.org as well as a variety of other electronic databases https://www.alslib.info/services/research-databases/
We thank you for your patience during this outage as we prepare our system to be even better in the future!
