Website et al Down Again

The website is again temporarily inaccessible. After successfully installing the new server yesterday, it seems that one of its hard-drives has died and needs to be replaced with a new one. This may take some time. The hope is that it will be back up and running today (Friday). However, most resources can still be accessed.

The online catalog: “ecrl.sirsi.net” (note: no “www” prefix) will redirect those in the library or at home to ECRL’s public access catalog.

ELM databases: “elm4you.org” (note: no “www” prefix) will take you to the EBSCO databases, among others. Unfortunately, Ancestry.com cannot be accessed while we are experiencing this problem.

If you have any questions please contact your local library staff.

Thank you.

Website et al restored

The server that provides web and e-mail service is online and it appears everything is back to normal.

Thanks for your patience. Thank you to Andy for finding the server, arranging to get it here, and installing it correctly the first time. And thanks also to FedEx, although I doubt that they’re reading this.

Website down

The website for East Central Regional Library is down . ECRL library staff are also not able to receive E-mail. The server that provides web and E-mail services went down yesterday. A rush order was placed yesterday, and the new server arrived at 10:15 this morning. Andy and Frank have locked themselves in the server room to install the server. We have good backup tapes and expect that nothing will be lost.

In the meantime — access the library catalog here: ECRL library catalog

The magazine databases are at — http://www.elm4you.org
