Bye-Bye WebLUIS… Hello ALEPH
After 20 years, the state university libraries in Florida are switching from NOTIS to a new online management system called "Aleph." FAU, among the last to make the transition, is using Aleph for cataloging and acquisitions, as well as for its public online catalog. Library users will find the new system somewhat different in look and functionality, and those planning on library instruction for classes should be aware that the new system may affect previously designed assignments. For assistance with the new system, call the Reference Desk at ext. 7-3785 (e-mail: lyref@fau.edu) or set up a consultation online with a reference librarian at www.library.fau.edu/eforms/refcon.htm. For assistance with designing assignments for classes, call the Library's Instructional Services area at ext. 7-4318 (e-mail: lyilis@fau.edu) or set up an instruction session online at www.library.fau.edu/eforms/lybiform.htm.
