Encore 4.5 Upgrade

If all goes well with the Sierra 2.1 upgrade tomorrow, we hope to follow that with an Encore upgrade on Monday, February 8th. The upgrade will take place at 7:30 am and should take less than 30 minutes to complete. If all goes well, the Encore server should only be down for a short time and be back up by 8:00 am. The Encore update will will not affect the Sierra server, so all Sierra activity can take place as normal.

The Encore upgrade will provide a better patron account view in Encore mobile, will add a genre facet to the Refine by section, and, so I have been told, fix the issue that has kept us from being able to link to the Digital Public Library of America in the Articles search.
