On Monday, October 20th, the Hoover Institution Library began circulating
materials online, via the Unicorn circulation system. Among the many advantages
of this move are that "display circ" will now have meaning in Socrates
I for Hoover materials and, when web-based User Services are mounted in
Winter Quarter, Hoover patrons will be among those who will be able to
check the status of their
circulation transactions online. On a day to day basis, of course, Hoover staff will benefit greatly from being able to conduct their circulation transactions online.
Congratulations to the Hoover circulation staff, in particular Maria Quinonez, who lead the effort to move online. She spent many a confused hour patiently trying to understand Unicorn policies and how to map her manual procedures to an online system. Naheed Zaheer and her staff in Green Loan also contributed many hours to the cause by providing the Hoover circ staff with in-depth training on the Unicorn circulation system.
Welcome aboard, Hoover; we're pleased to have your company!
