LibraryLinkNJ has suspended all deliveries effective tomorrow, March 17. Please see for further information.   Libraries that are closing should use their vacation settings to reflect that. Libraries that remain open can still receive ILLs from out of state libraries (those that remain open) by mail.   I have contacted, or will soon contact libraries who had scheduled trainings to notify them that all have been postponed. ...Continue Reading

JerseyCat Spring Training Sessions

February 27th 2020

I will be starting JerseyCat trainings soon. The trainings will be open-ended (anything from a comprehensive overview of the system for those new to JerseyCat to simply observing and discussing best practices for ILL), depending on your library’s needs. If you would like me to come to your library please let me know by emailing cconfoy@PROTECTED.  I will be available most Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays starting March 10.   AS ALWAYS, PLEASE RESPOND TO MY EMAIL ADDRESS, NOT TO THIS LIST.   Casey Confoy ...Continue Reading

Admin accounts

February 24th 2020

I have had many questions about Admin accounts (following the bookstrap imbroglio).  All JerseyCat libraries have Admin accounts which allow them more options than the regular Staff account.   To access your Admin account from the login screen:  Under the slot for your library name are two more slots. One is not identified, the other says Password. The default Admin login is to enter your JerseyCat three or four letter code (not your numerical delivery code), followed by admin in both slots.   So, f ...Continue Reading

Bookstraps, the continuing saga

February 20th 2020

The fix that Auto-Graphics supplied last Friday was “deactivated”  (didn’t work).   Things should be OK now. Here is what I got from them last night:   /The library-level bookstrap issue is now fixed.  Sincere apologies for the disruption this caused, as a change made by one library to their bookstraps was getting carried over to all other libraries (hearkening back to the original issue).  I've verified that bookstraps are indeed activated the library level.  Changes made by library st ...Continue Reading

bookstraps clarification

FW: Bookstraps

February 14th 2020

** Libraries have been reporting problems with bookstraps dropping information. Apparently this is an artifact of Auto-Graphics JerseyCat upgrade last summer. In the new version, if any library changed which fields would display on the bookstraps, the change applied to every library in the system. Auto-Graphics has supplied the following fix*: * * * */Library-level bookstraps have been enabled for all JerseyCat libraries. Libraries will now be able to click on their Configure Bookstraps link in their ILL Admin men ...Continue Reading

JerseyCat requests

November 8th 2019

Good morning, This is an appeal to all JerseyCat borrowers. Please do not send requests for books that are not yet published. I get a number of these requests every week, and I know a lot of other libraries do too. There is no way I can grant a request for a book that I do not even own. If you are unsure if a book is out yet, you can check the Baker & Taylor website or Google. Thank you! Adriana Adriana Bernstein Librarian North Brunswick Public Library 880 Hermann Rd. North Brunswick, NJ 08902 732-246-3545 ...Continue Reading
