Digital Sign Issues

Hi All,

I have been working on updating the library's digital signage with a new template provided by the Marketing and Communications Department.

The new template has been causing issues so the sign will probably look like a work in progress until I can work with Marketing and Communications to get it fixed. 

I just wanted to give everyone who may see the sign from the desk a head's up. 

Thanks for your patience,

Library Website Downtime for New Website Go-Live

Posting this here for student workers who didn't get the email:

The new library website will be launching tomorrow (8/11)! As a part of that process, the library website will be completely unavailable for a short time beginning at 8:30am tomorrow morning. They expect to have the new website up in its place by around 9:15am at the latest, but hopefully it will only take about 15 minutes. I’m expecting it to be quiet around this time, but if you get any complaints, please let the patrons know what is going on. A direct link to the catalog is:, and Discovery is:, in case you need them.

There may still be some broken links after that point, so please let me know if you or a patron finds anything that needs to be fixed and I will get it taken care of.  Also, the Cross Timbers Historic Images website was not moved over as a part of this conversion, so it will still be the old template.

Please let me know if you have any questions. My email is

Texan Bucks Unavailable July 31st - August 2nd

Hi Reference Team!

I wanted to give everyone who works the desk a heads up about Texan Bucks being unavailable from July 31st-August 2nd (Monday-Wednesday).

This means that students who have used up their $5 credit for the summer and have added money to their Texan Card will not be able to print from their accounts. If a student comes to the Reference Desk needing to print, please just print their job from the Reference Desk Computer for them.

Copiers will be cash only during this time so if someone does not have cash, they will need to use the KIC scanner and print their job from a computer. Again, if they have issues printing their scan, please print their job from the Reference Desk Computer.

Guest Copy Cards will also be unavailable for use or purchase as well.

Additionally, this affects payments at the Circulation Desk so patrons will need to either pay with cash or wait until after August 2nd to pay their bill.

Please let me know if you have any issues or questions!

CII entrance

Just learned that CII's front entrance is marked off with caution tape. If students need to use CII they will need to come through the library.

Digital Sign by Library Training Center

Hi Reference Team!

The digital sign by the Library Training Center has been turned off indefinitely as of today.

The screen was blank this morning, and Chris came out to look at it but he believes that it may be going out. He wanted us to leave it off for a few days to see if the TV would come back around and start working again.

I hope that makes sense! I wanted to let everyone know so that we weren't bombarding him with work requests or trying to turn on the sign.

Please let me know if you have any questions!
