PINES Patron Database Cleanup and Hardware Upgrade Schedule


Tuesday, August 26 at 5pm - Thursday, August 28 at 6pm

The patron database will be frozen for database cleanup at 5:00 pm. Do not change patron names, addresses, phone numbers, or barcode numbers. You may change patron user names, email addresses, passwords, and expiration dates. Patrons can log in through 'My Account' and change their user names, email addresses, and passwords. You may register new patrons during this time.


Thursday, August 28 at 6pm - Monday, September 1

The PINES servers will be taken down for hardware replacement. We expect to be completed by Friday, August 29 at 6pm, but if unexpected difficulties occur then we may also be down Saturday, August 30 - Monday, September 1. All PINES services including staff client access, OPAC access, and SIP server access (PC Reservation, self-checkout machines, OverDrive, etc.) will be unavailable during this maintenance downtime.

Libraries that are open should use the standalone client or other offline procedures.

A backup of the catalog ( will be available via web browser only to search for materials. However, the item availability will not be up-to-date.


All services will be available by Tuesday, September 2 at 8am
