We now have confirmation that we will be upgrading to Sierra version 1.1.3 next Wednesday, November 20. Please inform all staff that we will once again be doing a staggered update of the Sierra client on workstations in the afternoon/early evening after the server upgrade has been completed in the morning. Stay tuned for more instructions next Wednesday, when it is your library's turn to upgrade workstations.
