ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING LIBRARY INTERNET OUTAGE

Tags

The library will remain open under normal summer hours until our Internet access is restored. Students, faculty and staff can still check out books, use our study rooms or other group spaces, etc. We can also provided limited reference and research support.

Please note that we are suspending new Interlibrary Loan requests until we again have access to our online tools. ILLs that were already in route via the U.S. Postal Service will be processed normally.

Students needing computer lab access are advised to use the lab on the lower floor of Liesinger Hall.

Lastly, library staff does not have phone access and cannot check voice mail. Library staff will have intermittent access to campus e-mail via Strausner’s wireless and mobile computing. If you have an immediate need please e-mail us.

Thanks,
Brad Matthies
Director, Casper College Library

P.S. Libary Help Desk Annex services have temporarily been relocated to LH 3. Students needing technology support — especially help with their usernames/passwords — are encouraged to visit the temporary desk or call (307) 268-3648.
