Power Outage

Emergency Power System Tests – Saturday, November 5th

From 7am to 12pm on Saturday, November 5th, there will be tests of the emergency power system that will result in 5-10 second power outages in the Library building.

These are planned outages to the campus power as they test the new East Campus Standby Power Plant.

Please be aware that they will be happening, as they may result in minor disruptions, but do not be alarmed.

Power Testing Downtown 9/24/2022

Facilities will be testing the Emergency Power System on Saturday, September 24th from 8am until noon. The Isché Library and the RCB are in the testing area. The Library plans on opening at 9:30am as usual. But there may be an short outage while the system is being tested.

Delayed Opening Isché Library Saturday 4/2/2022

The Isché Library will open at 12 noon on Saturday, April 2nd instead of 9:30am. The Library will still close at 6pm.

This change is necessary because Facility Services will be working on the emergency power automatic transfer switch. The entire Resource Center Building will have intermittent complete outages of both regular power and emergency power. All power, safety lighting, elevators and air handling will be affected by these outages.

Downtown Library Closed – July 20, 2021

*Edit* The latest power restoration is 4pm. The Ische Library will not open today. Hopefully, we’ll be open again tomorrow.

Parts of the downtown campus continue to be without power, including the RCB. The Ische Library will be closed this morning… or until power is restored. The current restoration estimate is 12 noon. Library staff will be working remotely and available via chat/email.

Stay tuned for further developments.

Chat and power outage July 19th

*EDIT* With no power or AC, the Downtown Library closed at 3:15pm. Hopefully we’ll have power again to reopen at 7:30am on 7/20/2021.

The main chat and e-mails for the Library are unavailable because of the power outage affecting the Downtown Campus. Staff is still on site and can be reached via phone.

Power out in the RCB – Restored!

*Edit* Power was restored at 11:30am.

Power is out in the Resource Center Building so there is no telephone/chat access to the Ische Library. It is unknown when access will be restored.

*update* The Nursing/Allied Health Building and Parking Garage are also on emergency power. Entergy is estimating a noon restoration.

Dental School Closure 11/14

Due to a Power Outage, the Dental School will be closed for the rest of the day. All classes and appointments are cancelled.

Normal hours and operations will resume tomorrow.
