This is subject to change as UMD's COVID-19 response evolves. Even in the event that CLAS staff are unable to work (e.g. health, change in campus/library policy, etc.) systems are expected to remain online. Emergency protocols would be in place to ensure all critical shared USMAI systems remain online to the best of our abilities.
Aleph Configurations for Reopening Scenarios
CLAS has developed, and CLD has approved, standardized Aleph configurations for various phases of a library's opening/closing. Please consult these when planning services related to the loaning of your collections. Requests for changes should be submitted via Aleph Rx. It is recommended that you reference the status number (e.g., 1, 2a, 2b, or 3) to which you wish to move.
Remote Access to Aleph
In the event of a campus closure where staff at USMAI libraries plan to work remotely (a.k.a. "telework"), there are multiple methods by which Aleph can be accessed.
