Library Check In

News & Updates for Blue Valley Libraries

2nd Quarter Reflection

Thanks for all of your work this quarter! I continue to be in awe of the work that each of you do each day to make BV libraries the hub of learning in your building.


We spent a lot of time learning the new Enterprise system 2nd quarter. We are excited to "test drive" Enterprise 2nd semester. Please let us know if you have questions or ideas about using this resource to its potential. Details are below.


Enjoy your holiday break! I hope you have time to relax with family and friends. See you in 2014!

Enterprise Soft Launch!

Enterprise Soft Roll Out is coming! So what does that mean to you?

  • Between now and the end of the school year you want to start working with students and staff using the new interface.
  • You want to explore the product with them.
  • You want to continue to let us know what is and is not working the way you would like.


The current catalog will be available. The current BVLMC pages will be available.

You may want to add a link on your school pages for the new interface.


Some things to be aware of as we move forward during the rollout:

  • We are continuing to tweak the displays and resource pages. Some may change slightly in the next few months as our customizations proceed. Some may change greatly.
  • Some features will not be available from day one. Text Me will not be available until around Spring Break.
  • There will be a staff interface/profile available in January. This may be especially relevant to Elementary schools as users cannot place their own holds through the Elementary profile.


Next school year we will have only the Enterprise catalog and the Enterprise product. We will no longer be offering the current versions of the catalog or the BVLMC page.
