Service Interruptions

Saturday Chiller Maintenance

The chiller, which cools the Riddell Library and Learning Centre, will be turned off to accommodate a significant repair as of Friday afternoon. We anticipate the temperature in the Library will be warmer than usual throughout Saturday. The repair should be complete by Sunday and the building temperature will be back to normal by Monday morning. We appreciate your patience during this time.

Off-campus access problems

We are experiencing problems with some of our databases. Please contact Library staff if you are unable to access articles off-campus. You can email, or send us a chat from the orange Ask Us button on the Library website.
