Important information regarding the recent AMS power outage.

The transformer that provides electricity to the AMS building in Providence went down on Sunday, April 22. The restoration of our email, website, AMS Bookstore and other systems is almost complete. We are currently running on a generator but overnight a new transformer should be hooked up and (fingers crossed) we should be fine by 8:00 (EDT) Wednesday morning. This issue has affected selected phones, which should be repaired by the end of today. No email was lost, although the accumulated messages are only just now being delivered so you should expect some delay.

Thanks for your patience.

The editorial offices of Mathematical Reviews are in a century-old (almost) building in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  It was built for the Michigan Union Brewing Company in 1902.  Since that time it has been the home for a second brewery, an ice cream plant, a camera factory, and offices of the University of Michigan.  Mathematical Reviews moved into their new home in 1984, after the AMS purchased the building, renovated, and added additional space. The staff of Mathematical Reviews welcomes visitors.   The MR Building in 1902, Michigan Union Brewing Co.
