Lowcountry Digital Library Being Upgraded

This just in from John W. White, Ph.D., Director -- Lowcountry Digital Library:

Late this week and early next week the Lowcountry Digital Library will be down for a few days while we upgrade to the most current version of ContentDM and expand the server space available for LCDL. This upgrade will improve access to the site and triple our available space.

What this means for us is:

Beaufort County Library's "Phosphate, Farms and Family: The Donner Collection" is an integral part of the Lowcountry Digital Library. Thus, we won't have access to the Donner images for about a week as the LCDL does the tech work for the upgrade.
