How Does That Figure?

Ugh. The whole state of SD is upgrading the library catalog. The process started on the 11th and was supposed to be finished today. I went to our library website only to find out that the company has "encountered some problems" and they don't know when they are going to have it up and running! How frustrating is that? You can check out books but they aren't checking them back in so when you bring a book back it sits on a cart in the back waiting for the catalog update to be finished so they can check it back in. Which means that by the time this is all over there aren't going to be a whole lot of books left to check out! Our library isn't the greatest either so a lot of the books I check out are interlibrary loans and I can't get those without a catalog.

What a pain in the butt! You'd think they would do like one library first to see how it goes and then maybe do the whole rest of the state...but they didn't ask for my advice so I'd best just wait like the rest of the state. You'd think with most of the colleges starting this week they would have it done. I wonder if they will go back to the old reliable card catalog?!
