On Saturday, October 24th, the Lane Catalog and Jackson Catalog will not be available from 6am to 8pm due to a network upgrade in our data centers. Links from Socrates to these two systems will be routed to a maintenance page. Additionally, DocXpress, Lane's document delivery service, will also be down.
LaneConnex, Lane's main search portal, will be up and running normally during this maintenance.
