Maintenance Update: New Shortnames

We will be updating everyone to the new shortnames on February 28, 2017. We have already coordinated with major vendors that use shortnames for authentication, but if you have local contracts which utilize your shortname, you may need to reach out for an update in your configuration. Since these were approved over a year ago, you may wish to review the list and remind yourself of your new shortname. We are hopeful these new names will significantly alleviate name confusion in future.

NOTE: The links for overdue and lost notices are not changing to reflect the new shortnames, please continue to use the current links. An alternate method of accessing those notices is currently in development and should be available soon.
