Limited Availability for Socrates and Some Library Web Applications
Sunday, March 25, 2007 12:00 am - 8:00 am

Socrates | Other Web Applications

A server upgrade will take place on March 25, from midnight to 8:00 a.m., which should result in noticeably improved performance for Socrates queries. During this time, Socrates (Stanford's online catalog) will be switched to a backup version and a few Library Web applications will be unavailable. The backup version of Socrates allows searching, but some features will not be available or will be limited. (See details below.) If you have questions, please use the Ask Us link in the toolbar on any Library Web page to send a message to Library staff.

Socrates Features Unavailable or Limited

  • My Account

    The backup database does not contain current circulation data, so we cannot provide access to your records on-line. You will need to wait until the production system returns to service before you can renew your items on-line.

  • Requests and Paging

    You cannot recall items, page them from SAL or Hopkins, or use other request features while searching the backup database.

  • Recently Added Records

    Records added within the last few days may not be included in the backup database. If you don't find an item, please search again after the production database is restored.

Library Web Applications Unavailable

You will see an error message if you try to use these applications while the server is being upgraded.
