Sierra Upgrade planned for Tuesday, May 14
The Libraries will be upgrading our catalog system, Sierra, on Tuesday, May 14. We expect the system to be offline from 9-11a.m.   

During that time, the library catalog, Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad), remote access to library electronic resources, and Index Arkansas will also be unavailable.

You can refer to our Research Guide, “Down But Not Out,” for tips on locating items in our collection when the library catalog is offline.
