Update (June 28, 2012 at 1:38 p.m.):
Our ILLiad servers have been upgraded and are standing by to help process your requests. Thanks again for your patience and please let us know if you have any questions.
Attention ILLiad users: our interlibrary loan service will experience some downtime this Thursday, June 28, starting at 10 a.m.
Every once in a while, we have to pour the pulped remains of all the people with overdue materials into our magic person-to-book-making machine that we keep in the basement. Just kidding, we’re actually upgrading a server or something mundane and un-magical (but much cleaner).
In any event, we don’t expect this ILLiad downtime to be very long (as in back up and running the same day) but, if you’re currently in the middle of some hardcore researching and think you’ll need to make an ILLiad request, be aware that Thursday mid-morning will not be the best time to do so.
Thanks for your patience during our upgrade and if you have any questions, please ask us!
And, seriously, we’re soooo kidding about the whole pulping-people-with-overdues thing.
But you should probably bring in your overdue stuff anyway. Just in case.
