ICPSR Experiencing Network Problems -- Update

Update

ICPSR has moved its public website out of the affected U-M network; all ICPSR site functions should be operating normally. Our thanks for your patience.

Original Post Below

ICPSR has been experiencing some network connectivity issues related to the broader University of Michigan network setup. We are working with U-M IT and external vendors to correct the issue and do not currently have a timeline on correcting the problem. We have switched over to the cloud replica of our website to ensure that most ICPSR services continue without interruption.

  • Users should be able to download data with no problems.
  • Users will not be able to complete all deposit data functions.

Our apologies for the inconvenience.
