Library Catalog Downtime

On Sunday, November 9 at 9 am MT, we will be taking our network down in order to perform a cut-over to the new high-speed network that runs thru the state. The reconfiguration of our network is estimated to take 2 hours, during which, access to SDLN services will not be available. We apologize for any inconvenience the outage may cause but should provide us with a more reliable internet connection and the ability to increase bandwidth in the future. I will send out reminder emails as we approach the date as well as an email once the network is back online.

If you have any questions please let us know.
