During the weekend of July 13-15, CDL will migrate the VDX interlibrary loan application from CDL servers to servers hosted by OCLC. During the migration, which will begin at 5:00 PM PDT on July 13, the Request, My ILL and VDX services will be unavailable. These services are scheduled to resume normal operation by 8:00 AM PDT on Monday, July 16.
After the migration of VDX to OCLC servers, OCLC will assume primary responsibility for maintaining the infrastructure that supports the VDX and My ILL applications. CDL will continue to manage customer service for these services and to maintain the integration of VDX with Request.
Moving VDX to an OCLC-hosted environment will allow UC to manage the service with fewer resources, implement upgrades much faster, and be well positioned to move to the new OCLC service, WorldShare ILL, when VDX is retired in 3-5 years.
