See portal news page at or help page at for more details on new features and what’s different from legacy catalogue. 


In order to focus our resources on improving the content of the new portal, we will be retiring the old catalogue which we have maintained in parallel.


What is being retired and when?

Effective February 24, 2020:

·         The catalogue and pages at will not be available

·         Data files on file servers will no longer be maintained, and will be removed at a future date to be determined


What should you do?

·         If you have applications that connect directly to data files on the file servers (i.e., connection strings that start with OR )

change these to connect to the new portal.  See APIs documentation at to learn more about this new portal’s API (application programming interface) feature.
