Heads up

  • The bookstore needs all Spring 2013 semester textbook and course materials orders by Oct. 30 to be compliant with the federal government Higher Education Opportunity Act. Your action now allows students to see textbook and course materials information as they register for classes and helps them receive more money at buy back. The UofL bookstore shares textbook and course materials information with other off-campus bookstores that request the information. Direct questions to Sally Molsberger.

Information Technology
8.) SharePoint Secure to be offline Oct. 17 for emergency maintenance
SharePoint Secure will be offline for emergency maintenance from 10 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 17, until 8 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 18. This offline period is required to correct a production issue affecting Knowledge Lake users and requires that IT migrate the remaining secure SharePoint sites previously planned for Nov. 9 and Nov. 16. SharePoint 2010 uses the same ribbon as Office 2010, so the views should be very familiar. SharePoint public will be migrated Nov. 2 as planned. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this unanticipated date change may cause. More information
