Final MDID@SAIC Retirement June 15!
The MDID@SAIC server will be permanently decommissioned on the morning of Monday, June 15, 2015. Former MDID users who would like to make a final check of their personal notes, slideshows or image collections must do so prior to that time. MDID can still be accessed at https://mdid.artic.edu/Default.aspx
The Flaxman Library will continue to hold instructional sessions throughout the semester (see schedule below) on both the use of ARTstor and tips for archiving your MDID material. Additionally, suggestions will be posted on the MDID announcements page and on the Transition FAQ tab of this page. As always, please contact us at email@example.com to schedule a one-on-one session or with any other questions you might have.
