Many OhioLINK Resources Temporarily Unavailable

Update 5 am, Wednesday Feb 11, from OhioLINK:

*Available OhioLINK resources*: Library Catalog, Electronic Journal Center redirect page (redirects to publisher sites), Digital Media Center (all content is available), OSearch databases, Electronic Theses and Dissertation Center, Quick Search @ OhioLINK and the OhioLINK Web site, Electronic Books Center, the EAD, and Satellite images.

*Unavailable OhioLINK resources*: Some of the DRC instances are still unavailable.

Thank you for your continued patience during this process.

Update 6 pm, Tuesday Feb 10, from OhioLINK:

Update: Quick Search @ OhioLINK is back up, we forgot to mention it was down earlier. Another addition to the down list is the LANDSAT 7 Satellite Images collection.

Remote authentication now works for the majority of EJC publishers listed on the EJC home page, a few of the smaller ones may not work yet. Off-campus users who authenticate on the OhioLINK site will receive the right links to these publisher sites.

OhioLINK resources have been partially restored following a hardware upgrade that was completed this afternoon. Staff are now working to resolve some technical problems that resulted from the upgrade and to restore the remaining resources as quickly as possible.

Here’s where we currently stand:

Available OhioLINK resources: Library Catalog, Electronic Journal Center redirect page (redirects to publisher sites), Digital Media Center (content is only partially restored), OSearch databases, Electronic Theses and Dissertation Center, Quick Search @ OhioLINK and the OhioLINK Web site.

Unavailable OhioLINK resources: E-Book Center, Digital Resource Commons, LANDSAT 7 Satellite Images and the EAD Finding Aid Creation Tool and OhioLINK Repository.

Thank you for your continued patience during this process.

Many OhioLINK resources, except for the OhioLINK Library Catalog, are offline. The OhioLINK Web site may also be down during this period. Resources will come back online in stages.

We apologize for the inconvenience and the late notice of this outage, but it is necessary to fix the cause of the massive hardware failure that took place on February 4. This outage won’t address the EJC, that is a separate problem which we continue to work diligently on.
