Beginning 1 February 2014 JKM will become a participating member of I-Share, a consortium of 80+ academic libraries in Illinois (and one of the best uses of your Illinois tax dollars, too!). I-Share will allow LSTC and McCormick faculty, staff and current students to borrow library materials from any of the I-Share institutions, either in person or remotely and have it delivered via a courier service. As part of that membership, JKM will be migrating its circulation, cataloging and acqusitions functions to Voyager, a process that is currently under way. More information about I-Share will be available in January.
As part of our migration to I-Share and the Voyager integrated library system (ILS), no new bibliographic records are being added to our current (soon to be former) Horizon ILS (Bill and Emilie, our colleagues in Technical Services, are keeping quite busy in the mean time, nonetheless). Beginning Monday 13 January 2014, our migration will be complete and the online catalog interface will change considerably and records for new acquisitions will be added to the catalog. More news to follow ...
The JKM Library serves the students, faculty and staff of the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago and McCormick Theological Seminary. The JKM in our name was — from 1975 to 2004 — an initialism for Jesuit-Krauss-McCormick: Jesuit from the Jesuit School of Theology, which closed in 1981; Krauss from the Krauss Library, the original name of the merged collection when LSTC moved to Hyde Park in 1967; and McCormick for McCormick Theological Seminary, which joined the Jesuits and LSTC in the Hyde Park neighborhood in 1975). In 2004, in an agreement worked out with the Chicago Province of the Society of Jesus, the name Jesuit was dropped, and we became officially known as the JKM Library.
