Records for materials in the Burke collections will begin to appear in CLIO at the end of May. Starting on June 1, 2004 Burke Library will begin to circulate books using CLIO, and recalls, renewals, etc. will be handled in the same way as other items in CLIO. With the transition to CLIO, loan periods will be changing for some Burke Library materials. For more information, see Burke Library Circulation policies.
