Submitted by Deborah on Tue, 03/05/2019

The University of Georgia will conduct network maintenance on Saturday, March 9 beginning at 8:00 a.m. This means that both campus internet and campus information systems will be down, possibly all day.

For the Libraries, this means that you will not be able to login to our computers, and our systems (e.g., websites and other resources) will be inaccessible. You will still be able to check out books.

Special Collections will also be affected. The outage will impact their ability to provide access to materials. If you would like to view materials on Saturday, please contact Special Collections at sclib@uga.edu or 706-542-7123 by 12pm on Friday, March 8th.

GIL and GALILEO will only be accessible if you are using a *non-UGA internet service provider* at the following URLs:
