Library network access Feb. 24-27, or, where is a working computer this weekend?

Renovation to the wiring in Andersen Library will interrupt 2nd-floor network connectivity during the weekend of February 24-26. This work is expected to begin at 5pm on Friday, February 24th, and be completed by 6am on Monday, February 27th.

What does this mean? What works and what doesn’t?

Library Hours: Andersen Library will be open for its regular hours on Saturday (9am-5pm) and Sunday (1pm-midnight all 3 floors; 1pm-2am on 2nd floor only).

Study Spaces: All study spaces, including group & individual study rooms and the two collaboratories on 1st floor, remain available for the entire weekend. This includes the study spaces on 2nd (main) floor.

Computers & Printing: Access to the campus network on Andersen Library’s 2nd (main) floor will be down, starting at 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 24th, and ending early Monday morning, Feb. 27th. This affects the Library’s desktop computers on 2nd (main) floor as well as wireless network access on 2nd floor (using either Library or personal laptops). Also, the two B&W printers on 2nd floor will not work, and there will be no color or guest printing available.

However, the Library’s computers, B&W printers, and wireless network access will function on 1st and 3rd floors for the entire weekend. There also are scanners on both 1st and 3rd floors.

In addition, on Sat., Feb. 25th, the Andersen General Access Lab will be open from 9am-5pm to provide additional functioning computers and printers. The Andersen General Access Lab will be open for its normal hours on Sun., Feb. 26th, from 11am-midnight.

Circulation services (checkout of laptops, books, DVDs, etc.) will be available on 3rd floor, in L3102N (the big study room at the top of the stairs). However, no fine payments will be possible. Return of checked-out materials will remain at the Circulation Desk on 2nd floor (or at the book drop in the lobby).

Reference assistance will be available on 3rd floor as well (from 1-5pm on Saturday, and 1-5 & 6-10pm on Sunday), in the blue-carpeted lounge with the printer.

Photocopiers on 2nd floor will continue to function.

Questions? Please ask a librarian.
