On Tuesday, 21st of July 2009 around 12 o’clock an error in the so called „Fabric“ at the hosting-site of our hosting-partner GWDG happend. The „Fabric“ is the part of the SAN (Storage Area Network) that connect the SAN with the actual servers. When we decided for the hardware to be aquired for the production environment of PubMan we deliberately chose the SAN for storage because a SAN is one of the most secure ways to store data, because it’s eliminating most single points of failure.

We are happy to inform you: PubMan is up and running again!
First of all let us apologize to all of you for PubMan being down the last few days.
More details on the technical problems will follow soon.
We are sorry for any invonveniences!
Due to server problems (SAN storage) at our hosting partner, we had to decide again on a downtime for PubMan.
http://pubman.mpdl.mpg.de/pubman/ is not reachable since 11:00 a.m. We are aware of the critical situation especially for the colleagues, who depend on the data for the website. We are currently trying to reach someone responsible at our hosting partner for trouble shooting, but it seems we will have to wait for Monday.
We are really sorry, we do our best to find a solution. You’ll get informed as soon as the problems are fixed.
The storage problems have been solved, PubMan is available again. More details on the technical problems will follow soon for the ones interested.

On June 9th, a PubMan „Schnupperkurs“ for several librarians of the Max Planck Society (MPS) took place in Hamburg. The aim of the workshop was, that the participants get a first impression on PubMan. At the beginning of the four-hour-workshop we discussed extensively; about PubMan in general. After a break, the participants could test all PubMan features on their own.

The workspaces in PubMan serve as a kind of role specific desktop. Dependant on the role you have in the system you will have either a depositor workspace (my items) or a quality assurance workspace (QA workspace), where you can find „your items“.
Where as in the depositor workspace (my items) you find all items, that have been created by you, you will find in the QA workspace all items you are responsible for as moderator. Please have a look at one or both films in order to get an idea on the advantages and usage of a workspace.

Here you can find the agenda of the PubMan Days 2008. All shown presentations are linked there.
The PubMan Days in autumn 2008 were a great success. Thus in 2009 there are planned two further big PubMan Meetings. With the kind support of Marion Schmidt, the first Pubman Days 2009 should take place at the MPI CBS in Leipzig. It was again a large get-together of people all dealing in a more or less intensive way with PubMan. Marion Schmidt, head of the library of the MPI CBS, wrote a report about the PubMan Days in Leipzig. We say thank you for the report and for organizing the first Pubman Days in 2009 at your institute!
