ProQuest, one of our database providers, has just announced that it will be performing scheduled maintenance on its databases beginning Saturday evening, March 12th at 9:00 p.m. The maintenance window is 8-9 hours (depending on which ProQuest site you check), so, conservatively, they should be usable again by 6:00 a.m., though they might actually be up by 5:00 a.m. For us, the databases that will be down are ProQuest Science, Ethnic NewsWatch, and PsychINFO.
This is very similar to the previous ProQuest maintenance that happened a few weeks ago and a few weeks before. If you need articles from ProQuest Science, Ethnic NewsWatch, or PsychINFO over Spring Break, we recommend planning your study/research schedule so you will not need to use the databases from 9:00 p.m. Saturday to 6:00 a.m. Sunday. We are sorry for this inconvenience.
