Starting at approximately 8 p.m.,
EST, on Friday, May 20 , OCLC will continue 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.
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. We anticipate the processes to complete Monday morning, May 23, at approximately 8
a.m. EST. If the
processes have not been completed by that
time, I will post updates and alerts to the appropriate listservs.
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 sincerely regret the inconvenience
for NACO participants.
Please feel free to contact
me directly with any questions or
concerns, and thank you for your continued
