It's football season again and what better way to celebrate than a photo that illustrates the rough tumble ways the game was played back in the day.

I apologize for the Voyager and VuFind outage this afternoon. I was doing prep work for this Sunday morning and made one change too many. The servers did not go offline but they were unable to talk across the network to the Oracle databases.

The prep work has been removed and no further changes will be made until the servers are powered down this Sunday morning.

Over the course of the summer, there have been several 500-year floods in Louisiana, record fires in California, and extreme heat all over the East Coast that led to power outages in New York City. Hurricane season is here as well as the standard Midwestern woes of spring tornados. The number and kinds of disaster that can hit any institution are legion. So, libraries all need to be ready to care for their collections in the event of a disaster.
