University Libraries: Planned CardCat Downtime

Ball State University Libraries’ Catalog Upgrade

As part of a planned systems upgrade, CardCat, the University Libraries' online catalog, will be unavailable between 9:00 a.m. on Monday, August 1, and the evening of Wednesday, August 3.

During this systems upgrade, the following CardCat services will be unavailable:

• Searching for items owned by the University Libraries
• My Library Account (including online renewals)
• Hold and Recall requests
• CardCat links from WorldCat, MultiLink, and MultiSearch

Users will be able to:

• Check out items, including course reserves
• Renew items in person
• Turn in items

Users researching maps, atlases, and other cartographic resources during this time may visit the GIS Research and Map Collection for assistance, and all maps and atlases can still be circulated.

We appreciate your patience and understanding while CardCat is unavailable. If you have any questions about library services or your library account during this time, please contact the Library at 765-285-5143 or via email at
