May 2021 System Updates

Western ITDS and our external vendors undergo regular, scheduled IT upgrades and maintenance to ensure platform security and continuous improvement to all the Library digital services. Regular maintenance periods are scheduled to minimise the impact on the vital operations to all students and staff.

Thank you for your understanding, while we undertake this essential system maintenance.

System notifications for this month are:

Friday, 14th May: ResearchDirect Outage
Between 1am - 6am on Friday 14th May, the ResearchDirect platform will undergo system updates. There will be disruptions to accessing the platform during this timeframe and as a result staff and researchers will not be able to submit publications into the Library's ResearchDirect repository system.
