Polaris Upgrade Coming May 7

Saturday May 7 6PM- 12AM, Innovative Support will upgrade both Polaris and LEAP to version 7.1. This will be an off-hours upgrade, meaning Innovative Support performs the upgrade when the Library is closed.

In advance, Innovative support will upgrade the training site on Tuesday April 12. After April 12,  login to our LEAP training site and look around on your own time. We are skipping a few versions. Read the documentation for complete details on the new features available in 7.1(PDF’s)!
