Kaufman selected for OTNSI

Steve Kaufman from the University Libraries’ Design and Development Services has been selected to participate in the Open Textbook Network Summer Institute and Summit as one of our regional OhioLINK representatives. He will be part of a state-wide leadership team promoting the use of open texts and open educational resources. Seven regional reps will be attending the institute, and when they return will provide excellent coverage for train-the-trainer workshops and related activities in support of this initiative.

Outage affecting all OhioLINK services Tuesday 3/21 7:30pm

OH-TECH needs to complete some urgent maintenance on the systems that govern access to our servers. This maintenance will take place on Tuesday, March 21 from 7:30-10pm. They are expecting any service outage during that window to be less than 30 minutes. During the outage, however, all OhioLINK services will be unavailable.

Affected Services:
· ohiolink.edu
· EJC
· EBC
· ETD Center
· Central Catalog*
· DRC
· Music Center
· Rave URL resolver

We are not anticipating any issues after the maintenance, as the services themselves are not being taken down. OH-TECH is just interrupting the access routes. Once access is restored, Judy and I will double check everything, but services should be up and functioning as they were before the maintenance.

* While the Central Catalog is unavailable, messages between local catalogs and Central will be queued and processed when Central is available again. This will include all PCIRC renewals and pickup anywhere transactions. Once the maintenance is completed, OhioLINK will check the record queues from the local catalogs to Central and make sure that they are connected and that any queued messages are being processed.

We recognize that OhioLINK users are working all the time, and regret any inconvenience that this maintenance may cause.

Please email support@ohiolink.edu with questions or issues.

Thanks,
Meghan

Scheduled OhioLINK Services Outage on Dec 28

Scheduled Services Outage

OH-TECH needs to complete some urgent maintenance on the systems that govern access to our servers. This maintenance will take place on Wednesday Dec 28 from 8pm-10pm. While OH-TECH works on these modules, users will not be able to access OhioLINK services.

Affected Services:

• ohiolink.edu
• EJC
• EBC
• ETD Center
• Central Catalog*
• DRC
• Music Center
• Rave URL resolver

We are not anticipating any issues after the maintenance, as the services themselves are not being taken down. OH-TECH is just interrupting the access routes. Once access is restored, OhioLINK will double check everything, but services should be up and functioning as they were before the maintenance.

* While the Central Catalog is unavailable, messages between local catalogs and Central will be queued and processed when Central is available again. This will include all PCIRC renewals and pickup anywhere transactions.

Once the maintenance is completed, OhioLINK will check the record queues from the local catalogs to Central and make sure that they are connected and that any queued messages are being processed.

We recognize that OhioLINK users are working all the time, and OH-TECH has scheduled this work over Winter Break to hopefully impact the lowest number of users.
