To all OCLC NACO participants:
Due to changes in the OCLC Connexion authorities update processing, updating of authority records will not be available until next week, most likely on Monday, December 1.
What does this mean?  It means that if you add or replace an authority record in Connexion from November 24 through Dec 1, the record will be added or replaced in the OCLC Authority File and available via OCLC Passport; however, the record may not be added or replaced in the Connexion Authority File immediately.  You may 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 may be unavailable for controlling headings on bibliographic records.  Authority records that you have replaced may still be used to control headings.
All Connexion authority updates should be applied once processing commences.  You will be informed about updating progress on Monday morning.  If you have any questions, please let me know.  Thank you for your patience,
Susan Westberg
