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 questions.

 Thank you,
