Sciencedirect and Scopus outage this weekend

Just a heads up that there will be an outage of the Sciencedirect, Scopus and Sciverse databases this weekend. This is a scheduled outage so that Elsevier can implement a number of improvements to the platform, but means that all these databases will be unavailable for a 19 hour period, including much of Sunday:

Outage times:   Saturday August 25th, 9.30pm - Sunday August 26th, 4.30pm

There's some information here if you're interested to know the details of the improvements being made.
