On Thursday, July 15th around 7:30 AM, UR Research was taken down for planned maintenance. Though scheduled to last only a few hours, a technical problem was encountered that required the site to remain down for most of the day. UR Research came back online that night around 11 PM.
Due to the problems encountered, UR Research had to be restored from a previously backed up version of the database, made Wednesday, July 14th at 5 AM. As a result, when users returned to the site the morning of Friday, July 16th, the most recent publications, created anytime after July 14th at 5 AM, were missing. It was as if the last 2 days had not happened at all.
The good news is that none of these publications have been lost. The majority were restored on Friday, and the rest will be back up when staff return to the library on Monday. If you are subscribed to RSS notifications for Sibley’s Digital Scores Collection, all notifications received on July 14th and 15th should be disregarded. Users who receive email notifications should disregard the email sent out the morning of July 15th. The publications these notifications refer to are, or will soon be, available again on UR Research, but under different URLs than originally listed.
Having stable access and persistent URLs to our online resources is very important to us and our online patrons, and we apologize for any inconveniences this has caused. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
