1. MY CIRCULATION RECORDS NOW AVAILABLE
Stanford users with SUNet IDs can now find out what items
they have checked out from the Stanford libraries via the
SUL/AIR Web space. Records for items checked out from the
Jackson Business Library, Lane Medical Library, and the SLAC
Library are NOT available.
This new service, My Circulation Records, will also allow
users to renew eligible items online, view outstanding bills
and bills previously paid for or cleared, and look at items
they have requested for hold or recall.
Users can access My Circulation Records at:
First, they are prompted for their SUNet ID and password.
Once they have been authenticated they can access their
library records. Links to My Circulation Records can be
found on the SUL/AIR Web homepage (http://www-sul.stanford.edu) under "Circulation and Access", "Quick
Links", and the introductory page to Socrates. Thanks to Jon
Lavigne, Darsi Rueda, Jennie Nicolayev, Jill Otto, Pete
Adams and the entire Unicorn Circulation Planning Group for
their many contributions in creating and testing this new

2. WEB-BASED VERSION OF CATALOG NOW CALLED "SOCRATES"
The Web-based version of Socrates, the Stanford libraries'
online catalog, is now the preferred version of the catalog
to use. For that reason, its "transitional" name, Socrates
II is being retired. The SUL/AIR Web space and the online
version of Socrates are being revised to indicate this name
Available at http://socrates.stanford.edu/ or from the
SUL/AIR home page, the Web-based Socrates includes features
that are not available in the Folio version. One such
feature is the ability to search the full catalog record,
including information such as publisher, place of
publication, and any content notes included as part of the
bibliographic information. Links from the author, subject,
and title fields of the full display (among others) make it
very easy to find additional or related materials.
Although the Folio version of Socrates will continue to be
available for some limited period of time, please encourage
users to access the Web-based version of the catalog
instead. The Reference and Instructional Services Committee
(RISC) of SUL/AIR is continuing to work on further
enhancements to Socrates on the Web; your comments are
welcome and can be transmitted via the "Tell Us" button at
the bottom of every search screen. For further information
about the Web-based version of Socrates, contact Jennie
Nicolayev, chair of RISC, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
