Due to a new Linux glibc exploit called "GHOST" that could be a serious threat to the security of our systems, Production CARLI servers/services will now start going offline to be patched and rebooted.

I will post another update when this work has been completed. If a service is offline or not working properly after emergency maintenance is completed, please contact support@carli.illinois.edu.

These webinars are open to any staff of CARLI governing member libraries. You may watch the webinar at the time it is presented, or watch a recording of it on your own schedule. Links to webinar recordings will be announced when they become available.

The CARLI I-Share Next (ISN) Task Force is coordinating the effort related to the selection of the next generation of I-Share, i.e., a shared library management system that will ultimately replace Voyager for CARLI’s I-Share participant institutions. They are coordinating all planning, analysis, specification compilation, Request for Proposal (RFP) preparation and proposal review; they will identify the finalist options; and they ultimately will recommend a final preferred solution to the CARLI Board.

From  Historical Collection (Chicago State University) in CARLI Digital Collections.

This photo dated from the 1870s captures the faculty of the Cook County Normal School, which evolved to become what is now Chicago State University. The Chicago Normal School was founded in 1867 and did not find its first permanent home until around 1870, so these instructors must be among the founding faculty of the fledgling institution.

This morning at around 9:20AM, the Production http://vufind.carli.illinois.edu server stopped responding. We tweaked the Apache 2.4 conf settings and it was running smoothly again by 9:50AM.

Our apache2.conf file contains performance tuning parameters and we discovered that the new Apache 2.4 has separate conf files that set the parameters back to their defaults. We need to make a few more changes to the Apache conf files to clean them up, but I don't see any other issues with the operating system upgrade.
