InfoTrac and ProQuest (WSJ, NYT) Maintenance

No one likes to see vendors fiddling around with online databases during term paper season, but, alas, it happens.

Therefore, be advised:

InfoTrac (Academic OneFile, etc.) "will be performing network maintenance and upgrades on Saturday April 21st, 2007 between 7:00am - 3:00pm. (Eastern)" This is supposed to effect only their administration systems and not their "online subscriptions." But there are sometimes unexpected impacts from such upgrade work!

And, effecting both the Wall Street Journal database, as well as our historical New York Times database, the next ProQuest® platform enhancement release will be on April 28, 2007. A twelve (12) hour maintenance window will take place to install "new enhancements." The window will begin Saturday, April 28, 2007, at 22:00 EDT to Sunday, April 29, 2007 at 10:00 EDT.

Please plan your research accordingly!
