Pending downtime - 31 July

It's just that time of year...

As you may already be aware, we've scheduled essential maintenance to take place throughout the day on Wednesday 7th August, affecting our library management system. This is still going ahead as planned - for more information on how this affects our services, please check this post.

Downtime for maintenance has now also been scheduled to take place next Wednesday, the 31st July. Rather than all day, however, this will only affect certain periods throughout the day.

From 9am-12noon, we'll be performing a critical upgrade to our web server, meaning that both the library's web pages and our search tool Discover will be unavailable during this time. If you're on campus, then you can still search for items in the catalogue - just drop in at Question Point and talk to a member of staff. This particular upgrade will now take place at a later date, anticipated to be Wednesday 14 August. We'll be posting with more details soon. (Edited 30 July, 6.18 pm)

That evening, from 10pm-12midnight, the library management system will become unavailable - this will affect services similarly to the maintenance scheduled for 7th August. Our website will be available, as will Discover - however, search results in Discover will not display the physical items that we hold here in the library.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you. If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch with us using any of the usual channels of communication. Thanks in advance for your understanding.
