Since Workflows will be unavailable during the migration of Acorn to new servers beginning June 1, Technical Services will be limited in performance of our usual Workflows-related tasks. However, if you have any urgent requests/needs, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll do our best to accommodate them.

We will have workarounds in place for ordering and processing urgently needed items.  We will still resolve e-resource problems reported via InForm. Current print periodicals will be sent to libraries as usual.  We have a long list of projects planned for the Workflows downtime.  We appreciate the patience of library staff while this improvement to Acorn takes place.
