eTextbook/CourseSmart Downtime and upgrade

This Friday the 13th from 11PM EST to 7AM EST Saturday the 14th our eTextbook CourseSmart/VitalSource is upgrading its service.

For any student who has access to an eTextbook, the service will be down/intermittent during that time but once complete student access will be fully operational as normal.
