Library Resources Temporarily Unavailable


Posted on June 27, 2014


Library Resources Unavailable Tuesday July 1, Friday July 4, and Sunday July 6, 2014.


There will be a series of down times for select Library resources over the next week so that fixes and upgrades can be applied.

TOPCAT only will be unavailable Tuesday July 1 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm AND unavailable Friday July 4 from 9:00 pm to 1:00 am. During this period, there will be continued access to all other online resources outside of the catalogue such as e-journals and e-books.

On Sunday July 6 at 4:00 pm to 4:00 am Monday July 7, there will be no access to any online Library services due to a power outage required to continue work on electrical upgrades to the University. During this 12 hour period, there will be no access to electronic resources such as e-journals, e-books, and TOPCAT. The proxy server will not be available to authenticate off-campus users for remote access to online resources.

We recommend you take note of these scheduled down times and plan your research and study accordingly.
