Hawaii Voyager Down for Move, 22 Dec 2009

2 December 2009

The Hawaii Voyager server has been in a temporary location in Sinclair Library since the October 2004 flood. Our Systems Office is hoping to move this equipment from Sinclair Library to the new server room in Hamilton Library on the morning of Tuesday, 22 December 2009. (We are waiting to see if the new server room will actually be ready!) If all goes according to plan, this means that starting around 6:00 a.m. on that date, Hawaii Voyager will not be available. The Systems Office expects that the move and restoration of the system will take all day. Please plan your library catalog searching accordingly.

BTW, I am told that this move should NOT impact access to UH Manoa electronic resources.
