ARES enhancement Thursday morning (completed)

Jan 8, 2015 -

On Thursday, January 8 at 8:45 a.m., the Library course readings system, ARES, will be enhanced to use the Laurier Single Sign On (SSO) authentication system. With the recent integration of the Laurier SSO with MyLearningSpace and the previous integration with the Library off-campus login system, we hope that you will have a more user-friendly experience (fewer sign-ins) with the Library and affiliated services.

The enhancement should last no more than 30 minutes, ending at 9:15 a.m. on Thursday, January 8.
