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.
We are working to fix an issue users currently experience when using LibrarySearch—the Library’s main search box. Links to some full-text articles in LibrarySearch may not work. If you have trouble connecting to your article please use Databases A-Z, which will link you directly to each database and associated resources.
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 email@example.com, or send us a chat from the orange Ask Us button on the Library website.
As we work to upgrade our services we may experience a few short outages of the Sharestream server. The outages should last no more than 10 minutes and happen around 4pm on Friday.
