Library System Maintenance this Sunday (3/14)
From the libraries' website

The Office of Information Technology (OIT) will be performing system maintainance in the WBOB data center this Sunday, March 14, beginning at 6am and possibly lasting until 12 noon. We expect that there will be brief intermittent outages of some OIT-hosted library systems as a result of this work. Outages are expected to last no more than a few minutes at a time. The stated completion time is 12 noon, but - barring complications - the expected completion time is much earlier.

Some major library systems will be affected:

* Libraries Web Site(s) -- the Twin Cities University Libraries main web site
* Find It / E-Journals A-Z / Citation Finder
* OneSearch / article search box
* UThink: U of M Blogs
* AgEcon Search
* University Digital Conservancy
* HarvestChoice
* EthicShare
