Service Interruptions

Early Morning Library Catalogue Service Interruption – Aug 31

There will be a brief service outage for our library catalogue at approximately 8 a.m. on Tuesday, August 25th while we make small configuration change. We anticipate that the service will be down for only a minute or two. If you are using the catalogue and experience a disruption, please wait five minutes and try again.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Service Outage – Sunday, Aug 16 from 1 a.m. to 6 a.m.

The MRU Information Technology Services team is upgrading our firewall systems on Sunday August 16th from approximately 1:00 a.m. to  6:00 a.m. All University systems will be offline for the period of the upgrade.  This means that there will be no access to any of the library  websites or resources during the outage.

All systems will resume after 6 a.m. Thank you for your patience during this scheduled upgrade.

  • Use of the traditional library catalogue
  • Real-time availability for library items:  the “Check Availability” link will not work
  • Placing holds or recalls
  • Checking your library account
  • Using your library account to renew items
