Voyager Calendar Worksheet

The Voyager Calendar worksheet is a document that the Systems Librarian, or the Head of Technical Services, gives to the Heads of Circulation of each library for each semester to use in setting up the Circulation calendars in Voyager (Note: FDU uses only one calendar for both campuses, CSE uses multiple calendars).

As part of the calendar process, the MIS department needs to be notified at each college in order to make the necessary changes to the Patron Load files (SIF), add new students to our database and update the Borrower Expiration Dates. Circulation_Calendar_Worksheet
