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.
