OCLC database downtime

Beginning on Saturday, July 9 at 10pm  until at least 3am and possibly as late as 8am on Sunday, July 10, 2011,  several services provided by OCLC will be down for maintenance.

The Melvyl catalog, which is based on OCLC’s WorldCat system, will continue to operate normally except that book cover images will not display.

In addition, these services will be unavailable:

  • ArchiveGrid
  • Alternative Press Index
  • Anthropology Plus
  • ArticleFirst
  • PapersFirst
  • … and other FirstSearch databases (for a list, search “firstsearch” here).
