ProQuest Interruption

To our Saturday night researchers out there,

On August 24th, ProQuest will make storage infrastructure improvements. An eight hour (8) maintenance window is needed to perform the necessary infrastructure maintenance and during this time our ProQuest databases will not be available. The interruption will last from 9:00pm - 5:00am, Sunday morning.

Perfect! An excuse to go to the State Fair on Saturday night! Or watch SNL! Or, like me, sleep!

Actually, this interruption shouldn't affect you too much if you do need to do some homework on Saturday night. You can still search in SuperSearch and get the full text of darn near everything you need. But if you are linked to a ProQuest database to retrieve the full text of something, you'll get an error message. Our suggestion:
  1. Add those items to your SuperSearch folder
  2. Sign in on Sunday morning whilst sipping some coffee
  3. Retrieve the full text
