Serials staff, with assistants from other units, reached a major milestone in the conversion project last week. As of November 10, staff broke the five thousand mark, with 5065 serials control records in Unicorn for SUL titles. These records represented six weeks of work. At this point in the project, all titles which are monthly or more frequent should be converted. These frequent titles are more burdensome to set up than others, so I hope that we are seeing at least a glimmer at the end of the tunnel.

Around the same time, the Law Library broke the two thousand mark.

In an effort to better monitor the location of Green Library Stack Division booktrucks, we are requesting that departments wishing to borrow book trucks contact the Green Stack Division staff. Our office is located on the Lower Level of Green East. Please sign out for the booktrucks on our log sheet. You will be asked to note your name, department name and phone number, truck number, and date borrowed and returned.

You may contact Bob Mortezai at 3-9161 or Sonny Luis De La Pena at 3-9162 for further information or questions about truck availability.

As a precautionary measure over the Y2K weekend the University will remove from service several administrative systems, including AXESS, CAMS, CoreFin, etc., starting at noon on Friday, December 31, 1999; Prism and Prism systems will be unavailable beginning at 6 p.m. Because December 31, 1999, is a University holiday, these service outages will not affect the University's normal business processes. These systems will be returned to service around noon on Saturday, January 1, 2000.

There are no planned service outages for telephone, voice mail and paging services, network and off-campus connectivity, electronic mail, the Forsythe mainframe, or the Leland Systems.

A detailed listing of these planned service outages is available at


Later this month, all students, faculty and staff will receive a letter describing Stanford's Y2K readiness. The letter refers to these planned outages and encourages individuals to review the service outage listing.

If you will be providing technical support over the Y2K weekend, please remember to check this listing as part of your troubleshooting steps.
