Library Resources Unavailable Wednesday
after 9:00 pm

A scheduled power outage for several campus buildings Wednesday night, May 19th, is likely to take all library resources offline from about 9:00 about 12:30 a.m.  This will affect both on-campus and off-campus access to the library catalog, databases, and the library website as a whole.  It will also prevent access to OhioLINK resources that require authentication and will make it impossible to order OhioLINK books as an AU student.

All resources should be fully functional by early Thursday morning.
