This message will be cross-posted to various listservs.   
----------------------------------------------------------
Starting at approximately 8 p.m., EST, on Friday, April 22 , OCLC will
start a maintenance process resulting in newly added and revised
authority records being irretrievable via Connexion (both the browser
and client).   
 
This includes not only records contributed by OCLC NACO participants,
but all new and replaced authority records distributed by the Library of
Congress.
 
To ensure that no duplicate records are added, OCLC is requesting that
all OCLC NACO participants refrain from adding any new records or
revising any existing records until an announcement is made after the
maintenance processes are completed.  We anticipate the processes to
complete late Sunday evening, EST.
 
If authority records are added or revised during that timeframe, they
will not be lost, however, they will not be able to be retrieved and
used for controlling until the maintenance process is completed.  
 
We regret any inconvience this may cause for NACO participants.
 
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns,
--Becky Dean
