I-Share Upgrade (Nov. 2006)

A Notice from CARLI staff (11/28/06): Several CARLI-developed changes to WebVoyage functionality were introduced into I-Share libraries' catalogs this morning. This note describes the changes. If you have questions or comments please send them to

Changes visible in both I-Share/the Universal Catalog and in local library catalogs:

  • The session timeout counter has been moved from the browser status bar to the upper right corner of the browser window.
  • When a catalog session is about to time out, the user will receive a warning message, and will have the opportunity to extend her session. (As before, sessions will time out after ten minutes of inactivity. Active sessions will not time out.)
  • Help text has been added to the Edit Search page, which the I-Share Users' Group's OPAC Team hopes will improve its usefulness.
  • Other behind-the-scenes changes have been made to the catalog to improve "session management" and overall performance.

If you notice problems with the catalog, or have questions or comments about any of these changes, please contact the CARLI Office:
