Exiting the Polaris Client

Please be sure to exit the Polaris client every evening. Please note this is not the same as logging out.

This is recommended by the system designers for two reasons:

  1. Closing the client at the end of the workday prevents object locks. An object lock would be created if you left a patron or item record open on your client; leaving it open would prevent anybody else from working on it.
  2. No System Administration changes are applied to open clients. For example, if we were to make a significant system wide change the changes would not be adopted by every workstation if the client was not closed and re-opened after the modification was saved.
