Verifying new faculty

  • The UF Bridges transition is an ongoing process, and as such, the verification procedures keep evolving, based on your privileges and which databases each of you have access to.

  • Currently, the best way to verify the status of new Faculty members is through the Set Up HRMS link in my.ufl.edu

  • Sign In to your account

  • Click on the Set Up HRMS link.

  • Keep clicking through until you reach ‘Maintain Time Reporter Data’

  • Continued…

The faculty member will take this form back to their department, and their department will fill out the pertinent information. When they return the form, please forward it to Library West Circulation Services (currently located in Marston Science Library) for final review.

  • Form is currently located at: http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/as/forms.html

Creating new patron record for sul cc
Creating new patron record for SUL/CC

  • Currently, the only definitive way to verify patrons from State University Libraries (SUL) and Community Colleges (CC) is by having them sign into their account through their own SUL/CC library homepage. Therefore, if someone is from UNF and wants to check out books here, we will navigate to the UNF library homepage, and then have them sign into their account.

  • You can find a handy list of SUL and CC library homepages through the University Of Florida library homepage.

  • On the main library webpage, Under Find, click the Databases & e-Resources link

  • Continued…

  • FCLA is in the process of modifying their SUL patron verification checker so it will verify patrons from both Aleph and NOTIS schools. 

  • http://webluis.fcla.edu/cgi-bin/wlv3/CM2/DGgen/DBpatvv/CM77/P1ccpid

  • FCLA are also in the last stages of testing the Aleph Circ module remote patron registration which will enable the SUL and CC Aleph libraries to verify patrons directly in each others' patron databases, and import the record. After this is implemented, you will only need to use the verification link to check on Phase 3 schools (FIU, FAU, UCF and New College) until they switch to Aleph next summer.

  • Please contact Matthew Daley at [email protected] for more information.
