Library offering drop-in sessions to learn new system

By Chemeketa Public Affairs

Big changes have come to the Chemeketa Community College Library.

The library has moved to a new search system. This is part of a major cooperative effort of the Orbis Cascade Alliance, a consortium of 37 academic libraries in Oregon, Washington and Idaho that includes Chemeketa.

Having a single shared system will radically change the way Chemeketa patrons search for books, movies, and more.

The library is offering drop-in sessions from 8:30 to 9 a.m. and noon to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday the first two weeks of winter term to help patrons learn to use the new search system.

The library web site has additional information on the transition along with answering frequently asked questions for students, staff and community members.
