Hey, what’s with the broken links?

Update: On May 15, 2014, we had a major changeover in our library’s computer system- from our old catalog powered by SirsiDynix to a spiffy new one called Polaris. Polaris has lots of awesome new features (Emailed checkout receipts! Text notifications when your holds are ready! A “reading history” option!), but because it’s an all-new system, our “see this book listed in the catalog” links from older blog posts don’t work anymore. We know broken links are a pain, but there simply aren't enough hours in the day to go back and change all the many hundreds of old posts. So if you see a book you want to check out, and the link is busted, please use our handy-dandy “Search Our Library Catalog” box on the sidebar instead!

UPDATE 1/17/2013:
Every so often the library’s catalog software gets major updates, and sometimes those updates change the way that links to library items work. The catalog software company assures us that the updates are very important and overall make things work better, but as a result many of the “See this book listed in our catalog” links on older blog posts don’t work anymore. We know broken links are a pain, but there simply aren't enough hours in the day to go back and change all the many hundreds of old posts. So if you see a book you want to check out, and the link is busted, please use our handy-dandy “Search Our Library Catalog” box on the sidebar instead!

On February 13, 2012, the Southern Maryland libraries (St. Mary’s, Charles, Calvert and the Southern MD Regional Library) upgraded our online catalog. The new catalog is shiny and fancy and has lots of new features, yay! But… the new catalog’s link system works completely differently. As a result, all the “See this book listed in our catalog” links older than 2/13/2012 don’t work anymore. We know broken links are a pain, but there simply aren't enough hours in the day to go back and change all 540+ old posts. So if you see a book you want, and the link is busted, please use our handy-dandy “Search Our Library Catalog” box on the sidebar instead!
