New Brunswick PC Coordination Team Minutes December 7, 2004
Attending: Stephanie Bartz (Team Leader)(recorder), Tony Joachim, Pamela Johnson, Kevin
1. General updates:
K. McGuire --
- Kevin expressed an interest in learning some basic HTML. Stephanie will request a license for Macromedia Dreamweaver and he'll begin assisting with the maintenance of the NBL website.
- Concerns have been expressed about the appearance of public PCs that are missing their Dell logos. Team members will check the public PCs at their locations to determine the total number of logos missing throughout NBL. Kevin will look into the cost of replacing all of the missing logos.
- Novell passwords are due to be changed again in January. Kevin will send a message to PCWG recommending that an early reminder be sent to RUL.
- Kilmer is in need of a replacement for a Windows 95 PC used by reference staff. Stephanie will insure that the PC is included in the list for future replacement.
P. Johnson --
- LSM is expecting a new PC to replace the existing patent workstation.
- The home-away-from-home PC usually housed in a third floor office is on loan to Access Services for the weeding project.
A. Joachim --
- The Chang Library was experiencing problems with the circulation desk monitor near the gate and was given a 15" flat panel as a fix. They have since requested a larger flat panel for permanent use. Stephanie will get a quote and forward the purchase request.
S. Bartz --
- The PCs in IHL 415 are due to be replaced soon. The machines coming out of 415 should eventually be available for distribution to staff.
2. Software Database:
Tony will revise the software database based on comments from the group.
- Minutes of local reference meetings have not been posted uniformly. Stephanie will bring up the issue at ISSG and ask Reference Team Leaders whether they would like to continue posting minutes.
- It was suggested that it might be helpful to have Access Services desk hours posted to the NBL site. Stephanie will refer the matter to Roger Smith.
- Tony has completed a major redesign of the NBL site which now more closely corresponds to the RUL site and includes a search feature. Minor changes will be made based on suggestions from the group, and the new site will be live by Thursday, December 9.
