The Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries will be upgrading it's firewall on Friday, March 17th. As a result of this all of our services will be down for up to three hours beginning in the early afternoon. This service needs to be done during business hours in order to receive proper technical support from our vendor. We apologize for the inconvenience.

The services which will not be available during early afternoon of March 17th include:


Gold Rush

The Charleston Advisor

Collaborative Digitization Program

Colorado School of Mines Voyager system

All listservs hosted by the Alliance

All email at the Alliance

cgi login scripts for FirstSearch for selected libraries

We will try and keep the downtime to a minimum but the firewall upgrade is key to the safe operation of all of the Alliance servers and network.

Once the firewall has been restored all systems should automatically come back online.
