MNLINK – New Interface Goes Live September 19th

MNLINK Logo - 2016

As previously announced, the new MNLINK public search site will launch on Monday, September 19th.  Starting on that day, we will begin changing links and information pertaining to the site.  For Online Libraries, this will include:

  • Links on the SELCO website
  • Links in each library profile within Enterprise
  • Links accessed via dedicated PACs

Online Libraries are responsible for updating links on their own websites, including those hosted by SELCO.  In addition, for all libraries that link to MNLINK, anywhere that the name is written should be changed to MNLINK in all capital letters.  The logo has also been updated and should be changed accordingly.

The volume of these changes is such that we cannot provide exact time-frames for the transition at a given library.  Our goal, however, is to have everything changed by Wednesday, September 21st.  The old site will stay up until October 19th, which gives us some leeway.

The new link is: http://www.mnlink.org .  Don’t try to update early, however.  Until Monday, it simply points to the current site.

Feeling a little unprepared for the transition?  Minitex has made a recorded training session available to those who weren’t able to attend a session earlier.

Don’t forget the MNLINK FAQs that were created to assist your staff in responding to user queries.  The expectation is to update the FAQs as Minitex hears more from you about the information users are seeking. 

Other promotional materials (posters, bookmarks, brochures, etc.) are being finalized and will be made available soon.

For more information on the MNLINK transition, please contact the SELCO Help Desk (helpdesk@selco.info).
