ATTN: Schools Resuming Session

Over the summer, we have made a number of changes to the Polaris system to address printing problems. 

One of those changes requires that each computer has the latest version of the Screwdrivers application installed. 

For any school library that is unable to print from Polaris (but was able to do so before the end of the previous school year), please do the following:

Protocol for establishing SHARE policies and best practices

Transformers : Beginnings produced by Joshua Foster --  control number 1341532.  This is NOT Transformers (Motion Picture : 2007).  In one of the legacy databases, someone had changed the bibliographic record to match the item in hand -- with no regard to what the OCLC record actually was for.  Bibliographic record now matches what is in OCLC.

Check your holdings on this bibliographic record, and if your item does not match, please move to an appropriate bib record for the item you have.  If you need help matching, please ask.
