Library Closed - Weekend of July 7th and 8th

UPDATE: Access to library electronic resources will be available this weekend as we are not taking down the library authentication servers.

The Kresge Library will be closed the weekend of July 7th and 8th because the school will not have Air Conditioning that weekend. The University's Plant Construction notified us that they will be shutting down the cooling systems across the Business School in preparation for the new building.

The AC will actually be turned off on Friday July 5th around 11am, and we will close at 5pm that day (instead of 8pm).

Ross servers (including the mail and authentication server) are planning to remain available during the weekend, so this should allow people to continue to use the resources that we make available remotely. If this changes, we will send out a notification to the school.

The Effected Library Hours:

Friday July 6th – CLOSE AT 5PM
Saturday July 7th – CLOSED ALL DAY
Sunday July 8th – CLOSED ALL DAY

We will open on Monday July 9th at 8am.
