Estates and ICT Maintenance weekend (3rd-4th Jan ’15)

Just a reminder about the scheduled University Estates and ICT Maintenance weekend on the 3rd and 4th January 2015. It is likely that there will be severe disruption to all University online systems on Saturday 3rd, and potentially also on Sunday 4th January. This will effect access and usage of all online University systems (Moodle, Student Records online, basic network and print access, online library systems).

It is advisable to plan your work appropriately around this period with this weekend in mind. Please do not leave assignment work to the last minute……

Cheers
Darren, your friendly Faculty Librarian.

An email has just come through for a job:

Hi,

I was wondering if your students are able to set up a website for my father’s business. He’s been in the game for over 30 years, but has never really had a decent website. I know students help the community to gain experience and for course work etc, so I was wondering if a media student would be able to help design a website for us.

My father will never get round to asking, so I’m asking on his behalf.

Many thanks,

Will
