EZproxy upgrade – Sunday, April 12, 2015

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Library Systems will be performing necessary security upgrades to the EZproxy server on Sunday morning during regularly scheduled downtime (6 am to 10 am) on 4/12/2015.E-Zed-Proxy makes off-campus access easy.

There will be no off-campus access for the Library’s subscription databases, e-books, and e-journals during this time.  There will be intermittent access interruptions on campus, too.  I expect the whole process to last no more than one hour.  I apologize for any inconvenience.

This should be done by 10 am.
