Update on Conservation OnLine and the Conservation DistList

From: Brett Rodgers <brodgers<-at->

Dear DistList Community,

Following is an update regarding the status of the Conservation
DistList and CoOL. We are currently working to move the Conservation
DistList, CoOL, email list groups, and all other associated web
resources to a new server. Thanks to the efforts of Walter Henry and
John Burke, and to the generous cooperation of Stanford University
Libraries, this process has been progressing smoothly.

The CoOL/DistList resources have been hosted via a complex system of
software and server specifications, and are run on multiple
operating systems, now outdated. It is necessary to transfer this
material to a more up-to-date Linux-based system. While this process
is challenging, we hope that it will result in a better, more
secure, more permanent version of CoOL.

Our current plan is to initiate the physical transfer of servers
beginning on Wednesday, July 15, 2009. We expect to experience a
period of down time for all the abovementioned resources, lasting at
least several days. We will make every effort to have CoOL, the
DistList, email groups, and the other materials back up and running
as soon as possible.

For updates, visit the AIC website


or the main page of CoOL


As these resources come back online, we will send messages to the
DistList with status updates, and point you to the new web addresses
for the CoOL resources.

Thanks to so many of you for your words of encouragement through
this process, and for your patience.

American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works
