We just received the following notice from ProQuest, the company that provides our Wall Street Journal, New York Times Historical, and our new Massachusetts Newsstand databases:

"ProQuest will be taking a maintenance window to upgrade our network hardware. A nine (9) hour maintenance window will take place to install these upgrades. The window will begin Saturday, June 9, 2007, at 22:00 EDT to Sunday, June 10, 2007 at 7:00 EDT."

Since these maintenance chores can sometimes take longer than expected, please be advised of this known downtime issue.
