Aleph 21 Upgrade: Thursday 7/10/14 4PM to Saturday 7/12/14 9AM

Filed under: Digital Resources — admin @ 9:21 pm

Upgrade to Library System

Subject: Aleph 21 Upgrade Maintenance from Thursday 7/10/14 4PM to Saturday 7/12/14 9AM.

On July 10th Thursday at 4:00 PM Aleph 18 will be brought down as we begin the upgrade of the Aleph 21 PROD environment. The Aleph 18 environment is expected to be back up in read-only mode on Saturday July 12th, around 9:00am

We apologize for the inconvenience. Please alert your user community about this upgrade.

Here are some alternative sites for look-only access:




CUNY is undergoing an upgrade in its library system to Aleph version 21. The new version provides multiple enhancements: it will be easier for users and library staff to search for resources in the Library Catalog; item availability will be updated more quickly, allowing users to find out if a book or resource is available; and it will provide a secure and better integrated authentication process for logging in with patron accounts. Installation of the application has already occurred; testing and data conversion is now under way. The cutover to the version will take place this summer. The upgrade to Aleph will set the stage for CIS to work with Library staff to plan and complete work needed before Primo can become enabled. Primo will is a search tool that will enable, through a single query, a search across the all databases in CUNY as well as global and regional resources from the Primo Central index.
