Expected downtimes on the Libraries website - Dec. 26th, Dec. 28th, Dec. 29th, and Jan. 2nd
Rutgers University has scheduled a planned power outage on the Rutgers' Busch/Livingston campuses, to allow for major electrical work in those areas, during the afternoon of Friday December 26th. The Libraries' Technical & Automated Services building, which houses many of our servers, is located on the Busch campus. Thus the Rutgers University Libraries website, and the Rutgers community & scholarly partners' web resources hosted on our website, will not be available that afternoon.
The following web resources will be unavailable at times during the scheduled downtime window:
- Ask a Librarian
- Electronic Reserves
- Interlibrary Loan
- Mediavision Scheduler
- Moving Images Collections (MIC) website
- New Jersey Video Portal (NJVid) - Search & Browse functions
- New Jersey Digital Highway (NJDH)
- Rutgers Community Repository (RUcore)
- Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs)
- Faculty Deposit Portal
- Partner Portals (Virginia Tech, Atlantic County Library, etc..)
- Women Artists Archives National Directory (WAAND)
- Director's Station
- the payroll server, and
- the ticket system
We hope to return the Rutgers University Libraries website, and all the web resources hosted on our website, to full service by 6:30 pm that evening.
To perform infrastructure maintenance there will also be a planned power outage at the University's Administrative Services Building, on the Busch campus, on Sunday December 28th and Monday December 29th. This power outage will lead to a loss of network connectivity in the nearby Libraries ' Technical and Automated Services Building. As a result the Libraries website, and all the partner websites and web resources (please see the bulleted list above) available through our website, will not be available between 7:00 am and 7:00 pm on both days.
We hope to return the Rutgers University Libraries website, and all the partner websites and web resources hosted on our website, to full service by 7:00 pm on the evening of Monday December 29th
To accommodate a software upgrade, IRIS - the Libraries online catalog, will not be available the entire day of Friday January 2nd. We hope to return IRIS to full service by 6:00 am the following morning, Saturday January 3rd.
We are sorry for any inconvenience these downtimes present to our users.
