Outage affecting ReadingLists@UCL, 14th August
By Hazel M Ingrey, on 8 August 2017
On Monday August 14th 9am – 3pm there will be some disruption to ReadingLists@UCL.
This is the final step in an ISD datacentre migration. The project is to move the server of the Library Management System, which powers UCL’s Explore catalogue. This will mean a necessary outage of the library catalogue.
Read more information on the Aleph server move and how it affects all UCL Library services.
This affects online reading lists in two ways:
- For students: existing readings won’t have their live ‘Availability’ on display: you won’t be able to see whether books are on the shelf or out on loan. The shelfmark, however will remain on display.
- For UCL staff: you won’t be able to bookmark new readings from Explore.
Bookmarking from e-resources such as e-journal articles and e-books will be unaffected.
