American Chemical Society Journals are not currently available.
We’ll be applying a minor upgrade to MetaLib first thing on Tuesday 23rd December. The upgrade to MetaLib 4.2.2 (SP 403) doesn’t add any new functionality, but fixes a minor bug introduced by the previous service pack.
The upgrade work will be carried first thing on Tuesday morning and, if everything goes smoothly, will be completed by 8:30am. Whilst the upgrade is taking place, MetaLib will be unavailable.
Following on from that, we’ll be running a routine update of SFX. Although this takes longer to complete, SFX should be available throughout the update process.
As always, if you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
