Holiday system downtime

by Jeffrey Gallant on December 20, 2010 in Odum Library

As the Library prepares to go on Holiday Break with the rest of VSU, some of our library systems are taking a bit of a break with us.  After all, they deserve it – they did help you find all those books and government documents that you needed for your research paper, after all!   We’ve made a list of what will be down and when, and we checked it twice:

  • Our online catalog system, including GIL-Find and Classic GIL, will be down on Wednesday, December 22nd for maintenance.  The downtime may last several hours.
  • The GIL Express service (which allows you to order books through the GIL Universal Catalog) is down, and it will resume on January 3, 2011.
  • You can put in an ILL-Odum Express (Interlibrary Loan) request over break, but the ILL office will be on break, so those requests won’t be processed until we return on January 3, 2011.

The website and GALILEO Scholar will still be available during the entire holiday break, so if you would like to get the family together, kick back by the fireplace, and have the time-honored annual reading of the latest issue of Theoretical and Applied Genetics on your laptop, you still can!

Have a great holiday break!  Also, if you’re expecting Santa Claus or need some games to play, here’s NORAD’s official Santa Tracker: http://www.noradsanta.org/en/index.html
