Service levels at the university on NASA’s first furlough day
July 2 will be a regular work day for AASUA staff. The general rule of thumb will be that no unit will have less service than provided on a holiday. For example, the physical libraries will be closed, but access to the electronic collections will be available.
As each faculty and service unit plans for operating on the furlough day, department leaders are being asked to consider how to effectively communicate the level of service they will have available. Students, clients and any other affected audience should be notified through regular communication channels such as email, the posting of notices, website announcements and out-of-office telephone voicemail messages, for example.
July 2 is also a non-teaching day for most faculties; however, some faculties will have classes running, and some units will still have students to serve (e.g. residence services). In all cases, logistics need to be carefully considered including matters related to safety, security and access.
For information regarding specific service levels on July 2, please contact the appropriate faculty or service unit.
The following service levels will be offered by these central units:
Library’s electronic collections
Open with reduced services:
Environmental Health and Safety
