Power Outage at Bata Library, January 16

Posted on: January 16, 2014

There was an unplanned power outage at Bata Library today between 3-4pm.  Power was restored just before 4pm, and things were back to normal quickly.

Luckily, our building has lots of windows and the computing systems stayed on with emergency power.  Most students stayed in the Library until the power came back.  Our new PA system allowed us to make an announcement with emergency power.

Thanks to PUC and Trent's Physical Resources for fixing the problem quickly!
