Catalog Upgrade March 14-16, 2015

Beginning early Saturday morning and extending through end of day on Monday, Library systems will be upgraded, impacting catalog searches, request processes, and check out and renewal of library materials.

PubMed has been notified and is working on fixing this error. In the meantime, you can click the "Look Up" button until you are redirected to our Find it! page or search directly from our website:

Thank you for your patience.

Library catalog unable to display holdings and availability

Update: Holdings and availability data has been restored. The problem appears to have been a network disruption or temporary outage at KU.
KUMC Libraries' catalog is currently unable to display item holdings and checkout availability data. The catalog is still searchable, but any real-time data is unavailable. We're troubleshooting the problem now and hope to have it restored soon. We apologize for the inconvenience.
