December 9, 2015

During the week of 12/14 the Libraries will be making several improvements to their systems that will require downtime, including the library catalog.


We will be making improvments to E-ZBorrow to resolve backend issues. The system will be down for approximately two hours starting at 8am. During this time, you may make use of ILLiad during this window for requesting items from other libraries. 

Library Catalog - Thursday, 12/17

The library catalog will be down as we migrate to a new server. The process will begin at 8am and could last up to 24 hours, so please plan accordingly. Searching, requesting, and renewing items in the LIbraries' physical collections will not be available during this window. Many other library services will still be available, such as online journal and database access. See below for details.
