OCLC users - it's time to upgrade

OCLC has announced that all Connexion client users (this includes participants in the NHAIS OCLC program) must upgrade to client 2.10 by April 1, 2008. Beginning April 1, you will not be able to log on to OCLC cataloging with older versions of Connexion client.

To verify your version number, go to the Connexion Help menu and select About OCLC Connexion Client. The complete version number for the new client is 2.10 is 2.10.2909.22845.

You can download the new software using your OCLC authorization number and password.

FYI: Mailings went out last week by van to the directors of all of the libraries who participate in the NHAIS OCLC program with participation statistics for 2007 and an agreement to be signed if your library wishes to continue having direct access to OCLC cataloging. An invoice for this access was also included.
