Passport for Cataloging retirement date changing to June 4, 2005 
Because of the extensive system architecture changes for the June
Connexion install, OCLC has decided to move the install date from
Sunday, June 5, 2005 to Saturday, June 4, 2005. This will allow more
time for system verification to ensure a stable system for Monday, June
6, 2005. 

As a result, the Passport for cataloging retirement date is changing
from June 5 to June 4, 2005. Beginning at 6:00 am US EDT on Saturday,
June 4, Passport for Cataloging will no longer be available. After the
completion of the June 4 install, when you try to logon to Passport for
Cataloging, you will receive a message directing you to the OCLC
migration web page for information. This change also applies to NACO
authority functionality in CatME; however, other CatME functionality
will continue to work until June 30, 2005. The actual amount of down
time on Saturday, June 4 is still being determined, but it will be at
least six (6) hours. A message the week of May 23 will provide details.

Please complete all Passport for Cataloging and CatME NACO activity by
6:00 am US EDT June 4, 2005.  Feel free to contact me with any

 Thank you,
 Becky Dean
