The system upgrade on the CODA databases, including CaltechAUTHORS and CaltechTHESIS, continues over the holiday break (see previous message). As of Dec. 26th CaltechAUTHORS is still unavailable. Other CODA databases are available for searching but may be unstable through New Year’s day. All CODA databases are closed to new submissions until the system upgrade is complete.
CODA will be undergoing a major software upgrade over the holiday break. CaltechAUTHORS and CaltechTHESIS are expected to be unavailable from Sunday 12/23 through Tuesday 12/25. The smaller repositories (CaltechCONF, CaltechCampusPubs, CaltechOH (Oral Histories), CaltechLabNotes, and CaltechES (Engineering & Science)) will be unavailable for shorter periods during this same timeframe. In addition, all CODA repositories may be unstable through the end of the holiday break (1/1/2013), although they will be available for searching. All repositories will be closed to new submissions from Sunday 12/23 through Friday 12/28. If you are a graduate student and you absolutely must submit your thesis during this time, please email the CaltechTHESIS team (thesis AT library.caltech.edu) and we will make special arrangements.
The lists of new books and journals added to the libraries’ collections during the month of November 2012 are now available. This month’s book list includes book cover images for many items, and links to Amazon to allow you to browse the books electronically. Please note that we provide no guarantee that Amazon has contracted with the publisher to allow viewers to browse specific books.
