Enterprise- Scheduled Maintenance Notification – Finished

As far as we can tell, the change was successful. Please let us (eservices@sailsinc.org) or your library know if you notice any errors or missing links. Thank you!

Monday, July 27th, sometime after 10 AM, the Enterprise catalog will need to be rebooted. This shouldn't cause much down-time but if you try to log in and get a message the service is unavailable, please try again a couple of minutes later.

SAILS is going to be moving to a secure Internet connection (SSL), to further protect your privacy. Thank you for your patience.

New Website for Pembroke

pembrokeThe Pembroke Public Library went live with their newly designed website today. The site has been updated with a new look and friendlier navigation to showcase all of their wonderful resources and services. Congratulations!

Commonwealth Catalog Live!

Today SAILS is moving to the Commonwealth Catalog! The Commonwealth Catalog is similar to the Virtual Catalog. The Commonwealth Catalog extends your search beyond your local library’s resources. 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.
