LMxAC

Library Upgrade

On June 13, 2024, LMxAC will launch a brand new library catalog with its member libraries!

What Do I Need to Know?

Between June 3 and June 12 we will need to run a temporary offline system while we upgrade.

During this time:

  • You won’t be able to place hold requests – but any existing holds will move over to the new system.
  • You won’t be able to pay fines or fees, sign up for a new library card, etc.
  • You will be able to check out materials in person at all member libraries.
  • Items cannot be checked in and taken off your account. No items will be due between June 1 and June 20, and we request that you hold on to items during this time!

You can still use hoopla and Libby for borrowing electronic materials (eBooks, eAudiobooks, and more).

LMxPress Plus will still be usable to display your library barcode for checking out items, and will automatically upgrade to a new version on or about June 13th.

Do I Need a New Library Card?

No, your existing library card will work just fine in the new system!

What Improvements Can I Expect?

  • When viewing details about a book in a series, you’ll easily be able to find other books in that series!
  • Clicking an author’s name anywhere in the catalog shows an author bio, other titles by the author, and more!
  • Select your desired format directly from search results! Find formats such as Book, Large Print, or eBook easily.
  • Save your searches for easy discovery of what interests you, collected along with your checkouts and holds.

Where Can I Learn More?

Millions of items. One library card.

FAQ:

Will the catalog that we use to search for books be the same?

No. Clark will be migrating from our current catalog to a one managed by LMxAC. It will be able to search for items in all the LMxAC libraries, not just Clark.

What can I borrow from other LMxAC libraries?

Books (including New Books), CDs, DVDs, magazines, and other items. But some LMxAC libraries may not lend all items to cardholders outside of their library.

Will I be able to return books from other LMxAC libraries to Clark?

Yes. You will also be able to return Clark materials to other LMxAC libraries. Hotspots, VOX Books, Museum Passes, iPads, and Chromebooks must be returned to Clark.

Can I place holds on items at other LMxAC libraries?

Yes. You will be able to place holds on items owned by other LMxAC libraries and have them sent to Clark.

Will Clark still participate in M.U.R.A.L.?

Yes. But Clark residents will have automatic access to a majority of MURAL libraries in Middlesex and Union counties through LMxAC.
