To all OCLC NACO participants:

Due to changes in the OCLC Connexion authorities update processing, updating
of authority records will not be available for November 24 and 25.

What does this mean?  It means that if you add or replace an authority
record in Connexion yesterday, today or early tomorrow, the record will be
added or replaced in the OCLC Authority File and available via OCLC
Passport; however, the record will not be added or replaced in the Connexion
Authority File immediately.  You should get the message: The record was
replaced (or added) in the OCLC Authority File, but an error occurred when
replacing  (or adding) it in the Connexion Authority File.

Therefore, if you normally control headings during your Connexion workflow,
any new authority records that you have added will be unavailable for
controlling headings on bibliographic records.  Authority records that you
have been replaced may still be used to control headings.

All Connexion authority updates should be applied by Wednesday, November 26,
once processing commences.  You will be informed about updating progress on
Wednesday morning.  If you have any questions, please let me know.  Thank
you for your patience,

Susan Westberg
