OUTI Libraries’ services will undergo an extensive downtime on Thursday, 30.9.2021. The downtime is due to library system server maintenance. All online library services will be unavailable on Thursday morning, starting at 7:30. The downtime will last approximately for an hour.
Logging in to your user information, renewing loans and placing holds as well as information on material availability on the OUTI Web Library will all be unavailable.
eLibrary services will also be all unavailable.
The server maintenance will also affect self-service libraries and self-service stations at libraries. Please contact your library to find out the full extent of the downtime.
Updates have been made to managing holds in the OUTI Web Library. You can cancel and manage your holds by logging in to the web library with your library card number and PIN.
By selecting ‘Edit’, you can change the pick-up location of your hold and freeze your hold, i.e., suspend it temporarily.
Freezing a hold will suspend it temporarily so you will not lose your position in the queue but the hold will not arrive until you release it. You can freeze your holds for the duration of your holiday travels, for instance. It is now possible to input the date until which your holds will be frozen.
You can cancel your holds entirely by using the menu above all your listed holds. You can now also edit several holds at once.
