MCW Internet Outage Will Impact Library E-Resources Oct. 4th and 6th

Work related to the Zoo Interchange & Froedtert construction projects will be impacting the primary link that provides MCW with Internet service.  A switch to a temporary link on Friday, October 4, and a transition back to the primary link on Sunday, October 6 will cause brief outages of Internet service.

These outages will affect access to MCW Libraries resources, specifically:

  • Access to electronic resources both on campus and through the proxy server
  • Access to the library's catalog, MCWCAT
  • Access to D2L

Information Systems has alerted users that they may experience intermittent internet access and performance issues during the entire process.  They have asked that faculty and staff avoid large downloads from 8pm Friday the 4th - 4pm Sunday the 6th to reduce load on the temporary Internet link.  The full timeline for the work is as follows:

Friday, October 4, 8:30 - 8:45 p.m.

  • Internet service will be unavailable as we transition from our primary internet link to the temporary internet link.

Saturday, October 5

  • WisDOT will perform work on primary link

Sunday, October 6, 1 - 1:15 p.m.

  • Internet service will be unavailable as we transition from the temporary link back to our primary link.
