Revisiting the procedures for reporting Accidents. Previously it had reported that we have been instructed to ONLY use the on-line Accident Reporting Form. A recent injury to a staff member prompted review of that information. Please be advised that we are to continue to use the Injury Report Form for Students or Public for non-employees. The one-line form is to be used only for employees, both full-time and hourly.
Somehow there was missed communication between Student Judicial Affairs and RIS. When Judy Gardner asked for updates there was never any news or a ban letter on file. However, a ban was sent from Student Judicial Affairs to a banned patron on Feb. 27, 2008 for incidents at Alexander. Valeda's office has re-sent another of our requests that was lost, for incidents at Chang. Judy feels that we need more discussion about how we communicate during the banning process with each other, with S&F, and with staff in our buildings. This should probably be a future discussion topic for the group with perhaps a follow-up report to Judy on any recommendations the group comes up with. Please take a few minutes and review the procedures on banning that are posted within Staff Resources >Access Services > Policies. There are 3 areas covered
There will be some changes in Access services' group coordinators next year:
Billing: Jeff Teichmann
Circulation: Michele Tokar and Holly Muller
Collection Management: Andy Martinez
Reserves: Penny Weniger
Resource Sharing: Katie Anderson
Security and Facilities: Barry Lipinski
Student Coordinator: Rose Barbalace
This will be the last meeting of this group that Penny called. However, Penny will work on and submit our Annual Report based on our discussion. Penny thanked the group you for the good work accomplished through the last several years. Penny shared that Barry will be a wonderful coordinator of the group. He has lots of experience leading groups and he will bring that experience to the Security & Facilities group.
The group discussed the goals - completed and in process of the group during the past fiscal year.
David/Imaging Services - Busy trying to repair continued copy card problems at Art.
Barry/KILMER - New security cameras were installed around the building and in the parking lot. Hot water was shut down, which also shut down their air conditioning (for about 2 weeks). The building become unbearable and had to be closed for a day. The new group study rooms have been completed, but they are awaiting furniture. They are thinking about using a reservation system to book the rooms for usage. The automatic doors are still having problems. There is a new HVAC system in the works for Kilmer.
ART - Two fire drills/alarms. Roselyn wondered if the RUFD have any sort of standard procedure to alert staff when it is safe to reenter the building. Currently staff waits until fire personnel leave the area before returning inside.
Bill/ALEX - Security camera has been installed at the loading dock and in the front of the building at Alex. Four large electrical transformers are being changed in the building. The group study rooms have been named - gift of the class of 1958. Two more sets of rooms will be built in the future. All the furniture has been reupholstered on the 4th floor in the lecture hall. There has been some talk of revamping the lobby and the reference section as well.
Ramon/DGLS - There has been an increase in community users this summer, mainly to use the computers. So far no disruptions have occurred.
Next meeting - TBA
