Gale Courses

Gale Courses is now live for patrons on your Research page.  I also made it the "Featured Resource" for the next month.  Some of you have "Featured Resource" blocks on your website homepage, and those should have updated automatically. 

The Basics

NewspaperARCHIVE no longer available

The BadgerLink Team announced this morning that NewspaperARCHIVE, one of our most used resources by Winnefox patrons, is no longer available. This resource had been a part of the BadgerLink contracts that ran through 6/30/2018, and was not awarded for renewal during their recent request for bid process. They are currently working on finalizing contracts for a replacement resource.

Note Signoff

Hi guys,

Remember that to help keep track of who added what note to a patron's account, sign the note using the format "LibraryCode, FirstName LastInitial Date".

Library code is the two-letter abbreviation commonly used to indicate library, especially in reports (ie, BE=Berlin, KI=Kingston, PI=Pine River, WN=Winneconne). 

The first name and last initial, combined with the library, helps narrow down who created the note, in case there are questions as to if the note still should apply, or who to contact for more details.
