Workarounds for Holdings Maintenance on the way

Monday, July 21: Today marks four weeks since the Holdings Maintenance server failed to recover from a power outage.  Efforts to move Holdings Maintenance to a new server began during the second week of the outage but a number of technical issues are dragging out the process.  It's clear we need to offer temporary, alternative ways for libraries to carry out the cataloging tasks formerly done through Holdings Maintenance: adding and deleting NHU-PAC holdings, acquiring MARC records, requesting new records for materials not already in the NHU-PAC, and requesting card printing.  Workarounds for adding holdings and acquiring MARC records will be announced soon in separate posts while we continue to test alternatives for the other tasks.
