After emergency repairs, online repository Scholars Compass up and running

May 9, 2019

Emergency maintenance on Scholars Compass is complete. Some pages that were changed in the last few days may be displaying older versions. These pages are expected to catch up within 24 hours. Queued processes like updates, batch uploads/revisions, PDF conversions and PDF cover pages are still paused or slowed.

The VCU Libraries web team is working closely with the vendor to monitor recent changes. Status updates are available:

VCU’s online repository Scholars Compass experienced technical problems earlier this week. The system was sluggish and this inconvenienced graduate students who are required to submit their theses and dissertations by the May 10 deadline.

The VCU Graduate School is aware of the problem and is getting regular updates from VCU Libraries.

The nationwide problem affected all 500 customers and institutions that use the Digital Commons system.
