CorporateTime (CT) licences will expire at the end of November and will not be renewed. This means that the CT server will be disconnected and access to use of CT will end. For many if not most CT account holders this is not an issue since they have moved from CT to Exchange and the ecalendar features available with Outlook and Outlook Web Access (OWA). If you are one of the few individuals who have yet to move off CT please contact your LAN manager immediately to be scheduled to be moved. Once the licences expire you will lose access to your CT ecalendar information.

The ICC is now known as Instructional Multimedia Services (IMS). This change of name was made to better reflect the IMS's role as McGill's central facility for the design, development and production of multimedia materials as well as the loaning, installation and maintenance of audiovisual equipment. IMS also provides television production, photography and graphic design services. The new name will be phased in, so for a while there will be an overlap as the IMS makes adjustments to signage, equipment labels, stationery and so forth. The URL will change to www.mcgill.ca/ims, but the previous URL, www.mcgill.ca/icc, will still operate for now. All phone numbers and building addresses remain the same.
