Weekend Outage: Library Servers Down June 20th – 22 ONLY! –

Because of required work on the Graduate Center’s electrical systems, the GC Library website and servers will be down beginning at 8pm on Friday, June 20. Library services should be restored by noon on Saturday. (Note that all IT services will be down during this time, including GC email.)

During the outage, use the library’s back-up site, http://gclibraryisdown.org, to reach a variety of library resources, including the library catalog and library chat. Unfortunately, interlibrary loan and off-campus access to GC databases will not be available. However, a subset of databases are always accessible (with a CUNY library barcode) on the CUNY site: http://www.cuny.edu/libraries/j-and-r.html.

Because of the outage, the library itself will close at 8pm on Friday, June 20 and remain closed on Saturday, June 21 and Sunday, June 22.  The library will reopen at 10am on Monday, June 23.

The library will continue to rely on its back-up site, http://gclibraryisdown.org, until later in the week.  When we return to our usual site, http://library.gc.cuny.edu, it will have a new look and feel (which we have been previewing on http://gclibraryisdown.org).

Use gclibraryisdown.org

Use the library’s back-up site — http://gclibraryisdown.org — whenever there are problems with the main library site.
