ILL outage extended

Friday, Jan. 20, noon: The news isn't good. NHU-PAC interlibrary loan service will be unavailable for several more days. Repeated efforts to revive the server have been unsuccessful. Replacing the server won't happen today. It will take a coordinated effort among several parties to get this done and not all the parties will be available until Monday.

Is all the data about ILL transactions gone? Maybe. Maybe not. The data is stored on a disk array that's separate from the server so there's some hope that it can be recovered.

The next message about this situation will be posted sometime Monday.
