IRIS Returns This Weekend

The Libraries Systems Department began installing a new release of the IRIS software starting Tuesday, May 22nd. While this is taking place, users will experience a few differences in IRIS.

From Wednesday, May 23rd at approximately 8:00 am through Friday, May 25th to sometime after 6:00 p.m., IRIS will operate in a static read-only version. During this time--

  • You may still locate and check out books.
  • All links to web resources, such as ejournals, will work through the static, read-only version of IRIS. You may still gain remote access to our restricted databases.
  • Rutgers Request Service (RRS) and Interlibrary Loan (ILL) paper forms will be available at all Rutgers University Libraries circulation desks and should be used to request materials.
  • Users can learn about their existing barcode and PIN by calling or visiting the circulation desk of any Rutgers library or by sending email to our Ask a Librarian service. Users will not be able to change their PIN or renew books online through SELF SERVICES during this time.

For further information on how the changes outlined above may effect you, please send email to the Ask a Librarian service.
