Enterprise- Scheduled Maintenance Notification

ComCat Transit Notice

When you check something that you've borrowed from ComCat into Workflows, (discharge), it will probably be put in transit to Ursa. This is a clue that it needs to be returned to ComCat. There should also be a book strap attached, but URSA is the library to look out for. The process in Workflows is very similar to the VirtCat.

In one easy step, you can search through millions of items at participating libraries across Massachusetts to find the books, DVDs, and music you’re looking for. Make a request and it will be delivered right to your local library for quick pickup. You know what you want — let the Commonwealth Catalog help you get it.
Please search the SAILS Enterprise catalog first. If the material you want is not available in the catalog, please log in here to use the Commonwealth Catalog. For additional assistance, please contact your local library.
