[Koha] Fwd: Access to British Library Z39.50 servers

Is the British Library access a paid service, or is it an open service?  We have the occasional British Title in which it would help to have access to MARC records.

If it is open, what are the Koha z3950 parameters?

Just in case anyone is experiencing difficulty with the British Library servers - there's a reason for it and it should be temporary.

Due to problems with our servers you may be experiencing intermittent connection problems to our MARC Z39.50 service. We are currently working on upgrading our servers and hope to have this work completed in the next 2 – 3 weeks.
 Please accept our apologies for this problem and thank you for your patience while we resolve the problem. Regards
