OhioLINK Update- More Bad News

"The massive failure and the subsequent rebuilding of a controllerwiped out some key directories for the EJC (Electronic Journal Center), EBC (Electronic Book Center), and DMC (Digital Media Center). In other words, these machines are up and running and you can search or browse the metadata for the EJC and DMC but no objects areattached to them. This means no abstracts, no full text for the EJC and no digital objects of any kind forthe DMC. Ebooks is getting a "Service Temporarily Unavailable" message. The directories have to be rebuilt which is an arduous task. The engineers, after being up for 48 hours needed to get some sleep before they start this process, so they are sleeping this morning and will start this task later today. We don't know how long this will take. The OSearch databases are up, but you will not get a link to full text since the EJC is down." - Anita Cook, OhioLINK
