TECH ALERT – Horizon Upgrade on April 7

On the evening of April 7, SELCO will be working with SirsiDynix to upgrade the Horizon database to version We will start at 5:00 and work over the evening to have everything up and running again by Sunday morning.
This upgrade contains two major features which SELCO staff will investigate before enabling:
  • Family Groups – borrowers can be grouped together to allow different members to see and/or interact with each others’ checkouts, blocks, and/or requests. This is only in Horizon, not Enterprise yet.
  • Functionality which allows requests to take place inside of Horizon itself. This should mostly be invisible but will stop some intermittent errors in requesting.
Again, these features come with the upgrade but we will not be implementing them until we have tested them.
SELCO will post a notice on Enterprise late next week to notify borrowers that while the catalog will be searchable, requests and My Account will be unavailable. OverDrive ebooks will go onto a temporary rule allowing uninterrupted service. Please contact the SELCO Help Desk with any questions on the upgrade.
