OskiCat launches on June 24

OskiCat, the new UC Berkeley library catalog, is tentatively scheduled to go live on Wednesday, June 24. It will replace both Pathfinder and GLADIS.

Services that will be disrupted due to the migration include:

  • The Library Privileges Desk will be closed on June 22-23. During this time, we will not be able to create new library accounts, renew existing library accounts, clear blocks from patron records, or update patron information.
  • We will not be able to check out or check in materials on the existing system after 5:00 p.m. on Monday, June 22. As a result, most of the materials in the science libraries will be Library Use Only on Tuesday, June 23.

If all goes well, OskiCat will launch and circulation services will be available as normal on Wednesday, June 24.

Applied Science Fulltext being cancelled

After consulting with all the contributing campuses, the California Digital Library has cancelled the article index, Applied Science Fulltext.  It indexes more than 400 English language journals, magazines, and trade publications in aeronautics, civil engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, fire and fire prevention, mathematics, mechanical engineering, metallurgy, robotics, space science, and textiles.

In addition to budgetary pressures, the reasons include falling usage and that much of the content is available via other article indexes.  To find general science articles and access technical trade publications, use Academic Search Complete.  For environmental science topics, use Environmental Sciences and Pollution Management.

Access to Applied Science Fulltext will end on June 30, 2009.
