Student access issues resolved

10/24/18, 6 p.m. update: All issues have been resolved. If you are experiencing any problems with access to Library services or spaces, please contact us at Ask a Librarian.


Many students’ access to Library buildings or online services was briefly interrupted this morning.  As soon as the Library became aware of the problem, Library staff began admitting students to the buildings while working on addressing the underlying problems. Access to Library buildings has now been restored, and we are working with University colleagues to resolve problems with access to online resources requiring login as quickly as possible.

If you are experiencing any problems with access to Library services or spaces, please contact us at Ask a Librarian.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
