Library and Archives Canada Website to be Down/Unavailable Sept. 30 to Oct. 1

I just noticed late tonight (Sept. 23) that the Library and Archives Canada (LAC) has announced that there will be "an interruption of computing services" from Friday, Sept. 30, at about 9 p.m. to Saturday, Oct. 1, at about 5 p.m. (Eastern Time)

Saturday, October 1, between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. (EDT) the following services will be unavailable:

  • Searches in the Theses Collection
  • Canadian ISBN Service System - CISS
  • Electronic Publication Pilot Project - EPPP
  • Public Opinion Research Reports - PORR
  • Images display services for specialized collections
  • The LAC Electronic Library Collection affecting access to these digital collections:
  • E-Collection (electronic documents collected under Legal Deposit)
  • Royal Commissions
  • Commissions of Inquiry
  • Weekly Checklist of Canadian Government Publications
  • PS8000

I am not sure how this will exactly impact us as genealogists so just be aware that you may run into an outage if you use the website during this time period.
