On January 20, 2015, the newest version of Summit software was launched by the Orbis Cascade Alliance, a consortium of 37 academic libraries in our region. Subsequently, we have discovered a number of problems and are experiencing a high failure rate on Summit borrowing requests. This is a consortium-wide issue, not just being experienced at the UO. We have escalated the problems to the attention of Orbis Cascade Alliance administrators and software developers, emphasizing the impact on our users.
