INNOPAC

*Edit* INNOPAC was restored about 5:30 pm

While many of the network issues that occurred this morning have been resolved, unfortunately INNOPAC has not been restored to service.

We do not have an estimated time when it will be restored.

Network Issues

The Network Center in Baton Rouge unexpectedly lost power around 7:30 am this morning. Systems have been slowly coming back online as the IT department finds alternatives. Full power will not be restored until the end of the day (fingers crossed).

At this moment, we do not have access to our online catalog, INNOPAC, but the Libraries’ webpages have been restored. Please contact us for work arounds.

Our chat and email services do seem to be back up. And telephone service was unaffected.
