Duke OIT has scheduled a hardware upgrade that may affect your access to Library resources.

OIT is upgrading the hardware that supports the Shibboleth authentication services (which control access to Duke secure resources) during a scheduled maintenance window today (Tuesday, February 2nd) between 6:00 – 6:30 PM.

Users may notice a very brief (2-3 minutes) interruption in their ability to authenticate to Shibbolized services like FuquaWorld, course web sites, Ford Library & Duke Library databases and e-journals, Ford Library e-reserves and other services.

If you wish to have uninterrupted access to Library databases and e-journals during the maintenance window, please activate your Fuqua or Duke VPN connection before following links to those resources.

Thanks for your patience during this necessary system maintenance.
