Notification of Possible Power Outage Alert

ComEd is planning on completing their underground wiring renovation in the LSC Halas Field area starting on Friday, August 1, 2008. There should not be any power interruptions while this work is being done. However, unknown variables can arise that might create a temporary outage in some of the campus buildings. The buildings involved would be Alumni Gym, Crown Center, Centennial Forum, Cudahy Library, Center, Mertz Hall, Mullady Theather, Piper Hall, Power House, Quinlan Life Science, Sullivan Center and Yellow House. We will announce when Com Ed has completedthe wiring transfer. If there is a possible outage the duration would be approximately 1 hour or less. For further information you may contact W.M.Sherry@luc.edu.

Hi —

I have pulled a few British history reference titles from the shelves.  They are on a cart near my office.  I do not think anyone will ask for any of them, but they may be in the office for about a week so I wanted to let you know they are available just in case.   It is not a lot of titles, but more than I want to type out as a list.



Justin reported a missing mouse for computer number 100346 in the reference area in Cudahy.  I have asked Gino to replace it.


The call button for the IC elevator is not working  on the second floor.  The matter has been called in to the technician.

FYI — Tripthi mentioned that the public computers are shutting down when people log off. I have put in an IT request to look into why this is happening. Ticket number is 00058448.


This Fall, IT staff will come over to Cudahy regularly to check printer paper/toner and to clean the computers in Cudahy.  🙂

The Information Commons entrance will close sometime Friday.  Everyone and everything coming into the Information Commons will now enter through the Cudahy Library entrance.  The Cudahy entrance will be the only entrance from Friday through sometime in January 2009.

We’ve known that the IC doors would be closing some time this summer to allow the next phase of construction on the east quad.  The construction people were not able to give us an exact date before now because it depended on the progress clearing the Jesuit Residence site.  Now the day is upon us.

For the remainder of the Summer, the librarians will be at the IC desk from 10-1, they can be reached at extension (8-8365), they will not be in the Consultation office during those hours.

Loyola Community,

The School of Continuing and Professional Studies (SCPS) and the Gannon Center for Women & Leadership are pleased to announce that the Office of the Provost will award two full scholarships to members of the Loyola University Chicago full-time faculty or staff for the Certificate in Womens Leadership program, which begins this October.

The Certificate in Womens Leadership, initiated by the SCPS and the Gannon Center for Women & Leadership, is an exciting course created to provide women in the work force with solid leadership skills and practices, and to assist them in advancing their careers. A non-credit, post-baccalaureate program, the course includes five three-day seminars throughout the academic year that focus on the ethics, theories, and hard skills of leadership, and are specifically designed for women who have at least three to five years of managerial experience and aspire to become better leaders in their field.

All female employees who have worked a minimum of two years full-time for the University, and meet the application criteria, are eligible to apply for the scholarship. To learn more about the scholarship, and how to apply, visit http://www.LUC.edu/womensleadership/Admission_Scholarship.shtml.

Thank you,
