Frequently asked questions about the library.

I'm trying to search the library catalogue, but I'm getting the message - "The OPAC is currently unavailable. Please try again later." What's the problem?

There are a number of possible reasons. In order of likelihood:

  1. It's Sunday evening after 5:30 PM and the catalogue is being updated. This lasts from 6-8 hours.
  2. The catalogue is broken. This happens occasionally and if it's outside the indexing hours above, contact us to let us know.

Note that even though the catalogue is indexing, it's still possible to access and search our e-book collections by going to this page and choosing the e-book collection you wish to search.

Don't suffer in silence, though. Contact us and let us know if you're having problems and we'll do our best to help.
