Planned Outage: Many Library Resources Unavailable Sept. 18


On September 18, the library will be making an important upgrade to its Integrated Library System software. This will unfortunately cause a service outage while work is being done.

From approximately 11am to 6pm on Tuesday, Sept. 18, the following services will not be available:

  • Access to the library catalog (used to look up books, media, and electronic reserves in the library's collection)
  • Off-campus access to the library article databases and E-research tools

On-campus access to article databases will be available through a temporary portal -- we will link to this webpage prominently on the library's website.

Library staff will be on hand to help patrons locate materials during the service outage. Please do not hesitate to ask a librarian if you need assistance.

We regret the inconvenience this will cause.

The new software will provide greater functionality with the power of a more modern software architecture. It will give us greater flexibility to create new services and better meet the changing needs of our users.
