Possible Interruption in Services

On Monday, December 28th, 2009, a scheduled power outage will take place in many buildings on the UH campus, including the M.D. Anderson Library. Although it is anticipated that power will be restored by 10 a.m. when the Library is scheduled to open that day, it is possible that the power outage might extend beyond its scheduled down time. Online access and the computers would be unavailable during that time.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

If you have any questions, please contact Paul Sharpe, Head of Access Services, psharpe@uh.edu, 713-743-9714.

Remote Access Issues Resolved, PeopleSoft Login Reinstated

Beginning on Saturday December 6th, the UH Libraries experienced network issues that affected off-campus patrons’ ability to log in and access web databases. The only way to temporarily resolve these issues and restore access was to change remote login from using PeopleSoft ID to CougarNet. We have now resolved the network issues and have changed the login back to using PeopleSoft ID. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
