Polaris Usernames are Disabled

When we upgraded to Polaris 5.6 on February 24, we completely disabled the username feature in Polaris to get our customizations on the registration page to work.  Rest assured this change will not affect our patron’s access to BiblioCommons.

However, there are two groups of patrons who are affected:

  • Patrons who login to our subscription databases with their Polaris username.
  • Patrons who login to the classic catalog with their Polaris username.

So, if you get questions about patrons not being able to access the databases, please direct them to use their library barcode instead.

    Is this change permanent, or will their usernames be available at a later date for databases? Thanks.
