  3. Planned essential maintenance – 8/9 April 2017

The Open University is carrying out some essential works on our network on Saturday 8 April from 11pm until 11am on Sunday 9 April (BST).  

During this time, OU services and systems will be ‘At Risk’ and may be unavailable. This will include the main Library website. Please assume that you will not be able to access any online library resources (such as journals, ebooks and databases) during this time. 

We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause, but the work we are carrying out will improve the robustness and reliability of our systems in the longer term. 

Please do plan your studies around this 'At Risk' time.
