NHU-PAC offline today

Wednesday, Dec. 22, 8:10 a.m.: Today's the day we'll be upgrading NHU-PAC server software. Plan for the system to be unavailable for several hours starting sometime after 10 a.m. If we get a better idea of the exact start time, you'll see a message here on the NHAIS Notes blog.

A message will be posted when all is set. Before that time, the system may go up and down so you may notice that you're able to connect to the NHU-PAC at times. You're welcome to do casual searches while you're connected but we strongly advise against doing operations like cataloging or ILL until you see the all-set message.

One reason for doing this upgrade now is our recent problems with updating NHU-PAC's keyword indexes. New, up-to-date indexes won't be available immediately after the upgrade. It'll take at least one overnight period to rebuild the indexes.
