Due to scheduled maintenance of the Yale network, all Yale Library websites and online resources will be offline from around 9 pm on Saturday, July 17, until midmorning on Sunday, July 18. We regret any inconvenience to our patrons. 

The shutdown of library resources is part of a planned maintenance of the Yale network by Yale Information Technology Services (ITS) that is scheduled to go from 10 pm on July 17 to 3 am on July 18. As a protective measure, library services and systems must be powered down before the ITS maintenance window begins and then restored in a sequence after the ITS work is finished. As a result, library systems will be offline for longer than the overall University network outage.

Library systems and services should be back to normal by 10:30 am on Sunday. However, this schedule could change if ITS’s work extends past 3 am or if unexpected problems arise.  All times are Eastern Daylight Time. If you have trouble accessing library services on Sunday after 10:30 am, please check @YaleLibrary on twitter for updates.
