System upgrade 20 July – some services disrupted

Open laptopThis summer we are upgrading Enterprise, our Library Catalogue, to give us a more robust, reliable system and take advantage of some new features. During the upgrade, on Monday 20 July, between 19:00 and midnight, some services will unavailable.

You will still be able to…

  • Search the old Library catalogue, Unicorn to access information about our book holdings and some e-resources. You will also be able to place holds through Unicorn if you wish to use our Click & Collect service.
  • Use Summon for online access to journal articles, book chapters, and much more!

But you won’t be able to…

  • Access your online Library account to renew your loans or pay fines.

The upgrade is planned to have finished by Tuesday 21 July, but we will still designate the system as ‘at risk’ on that day as the Systems Team test the upgrade. We will let you know if Enterprise will be unavailable for longer than initially planned.

If you have trouble accessing e-resources you can contact the E-resources Team on eresourceshelp@reading.ac.uk or you can fill in a Problem Report Form.

If you want to talk to someone about your account you can contact the Library at library@reading.ac.uk
