OSLIS Update

As you may know, OSLIS has been available/up all day Tuesday and today except for 10 minutes of scheduled maintenance around 4pm yesterday. 

It looks like the hired company found all the kinks and unkinked them.  Just in case, the back doors to the Gale databases and Citation Maker will remain open for at least a week.

As mentioned in a previous message, besides making it a priority to get OSLIS working again, we initiated steps to help ensure greater stability in the future.  More on that as it develops.

Thanks to students, teachers, and you for your patience during this trial.

Here are two parting thoughts borrowed from comedian Carrie P. Snow:   
    “Technology... is a queer thing. It brings you great gifts with one hand, and it stabs you in the back with the other.”
    “No day is so bad it can't be fixed with a nap.”
