My Dundee will be down on Fri 5 Jan

My Dundee will be taken offline for maintenance on the morning of Fri 5 Jan 2018. The service
should be restored and made available to you later the same day, though there will be an ‘at risk’
period that extends to Mon 8 Jan.

At risk?
The maintenance period should be limited to Fri 5, but as with any major technical activity, it is possible that an unforeseen issue will arise. Because of the weekend, downtime may extend through to Mon 8.

What and who will this effect?
My Dundee and all services delivered through it will be unavailable to all during the downtime. Anyone trying to access my.dundee.ac.uk will be shown a notice explaining the situation.

Any questions about this downtime can be sent through Help4U.

Service Restored: Dalhousie Network Outage

The issues affecting network connectivity within Dalhousie this morning (Monday 30th October) have been identified and resolved with full restoration of service.

Bristol Online Survey (BOS) Downtime

Ownership of the Bristol Online Surveys (BOS) tool is scheduled to transfer from the University of Bristol to Jisc on Tue 03 Oct 2017, during which there will be a period of downtime. Current expectation is that the downtime will last no longer than 48 hours.

Unfortunately, the above transfer date is outwith the control of the University of Dundee, however, support will continue to be provided as normal by the LLC & CI Survey Service during the transitional time. Following the transfer, there should be no noticeable difference to your use of the BOS survey tool.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the Library via LLC-Surveys@dundee.ac.uk.
