Hello --

UVM's giraffe host and the Banner Student Information System (SIS) will be
unavailable most of the day this coming Sunday,

        Sunday, April 5, 1998,
           from 8am to 5pm

while giraffe's operating system is being upgraded.

This will affect all forms of access to the student information system:

         []     Web and Touch-tone registration for summer.

         []     Web access for course info, class lists, schedules,

                This includes everything on the Registrar's web pages,
                found by going to the UVM home page and choosing
                "Courses, Registration, Policies, Procedures", then
                "Office of the Registrar"; or by going to:


         []     Telnet or dial-in to giraffe for Banner SIS

In addition, UVM's new "point-and-click" web access to the LUIS library
system will be unavailable for part of the day Sunday, from 8am until
approximately 12:00 noon.  However, both tn3270 and telnet access to LUIS
will remain available without interruption.

Please direct questions to the CIT Help Line, [log in to unmask] or
656-2604.  As usual, once Banner SIS is again available, usage and PIN
questions should be directed to the Registrar's Office,
[log in to unmask] or 656-2045.
