Library and IT leads the way in Banner security!

Here at Bucknell, Library and IT developed the Administrative Systems Access Portal, which provides secure virtual access to its Banner enterprise resource planning system.

New Telephone Dialing Procedure: Dial ’8′ for off-campus!

As part of the ongoing telephone upgrade project, there will be a new dialing prefix on campus starting next week.

Please be aware that as of Noon on Sunday, August 10 our campus phone system will require you to dial an “8″ before dialing an off-campus phone number. 

Currently you are required to dial a “9″ to reach off-campus extensions.  This change is intended to reduce the number of unintentional calls to “911.”  (Of course, dialing “911″ from your campus phone will be handled as an emergency call as expected.)
