Starting at approximately 8 p.m., EST, on
Friday, May 13 , OCLC
will continue a maintenance process
resulting in newly added and revised authority records being irretrievable via
Connexion (both the browser and client).
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 early Monday morning, 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
