Thanksgiving Week Hours, Campus Libraries

November 12th, 2012
During the week of the Thanksgiving holiday, campus libraries will observe some changes from their regular hours of operation. Do plan ahead should you need to visit the libraries or to pick up items from their collections. Steenbock Library hours are posted on its home page (lower right on screen) and on its detailed hours page. Hours of operation for all campus libraries can be found by browsing the list of libraries at the campus libraries’ “Who’s Open” page.

Special note, from the Library Technology Group, regarding off-campus, online access:

Due to campus IT maintenance, login services will be unavailable from 9:00 am through 1:00 pm Thanksgiving Day, November 22, 2012.
Most services that require a UW-Madison NetID authentication will not function during this time.
Most importantly for Library patrons, off-campus users will be unable to access Library databases during this time. Access to databases from campus buildings should not be affected.

In addition, Library patrons will not be able to use their NetIDs to check their Library Catalog account for book requests, fines, or other information. They will be able to check this information in MadCat (our legacy catalog) using their 11 digit campus ID number.

Additional information, including a partial list of other campus services impacted by this maintenance, is available on DoIT’s Scheduled Outage page.

Happy travels; enjoy the long weekend.
