Grace Agnew requested PCWG come up with a plan to redistribute 76 ACIC machines to staff areas. Each coordinator is going over his/her building's inventory and assigning each staff member a use category: high level (only a few throughout RULS) graphics, web design and programming; mid level (just about everyone) word processing, spreadsheets, email etc; and Low level (Circulation terminals). Coordinators will forward their results to John by March 1.
All 10 servers are scheduled to be replaced after May; 5 have had their netware software upgraded, and the other five will follow.
60 of the 314 ELF machines ordered have arrived and have begun to be installed. A problem has arisen with the public printing software – it does not work consistently with Win 2000 – and Donna is getting upgraded software to fix this problem so that the public machines can be installed. Ann B. said that Systems is getting ELF shipments of 50-60 machines at a time, and they all will be installed by the end of the term. Old public pcs will be hauled off to surplus property as part of the install process.
The first ELF microfilm machine was delivered to Kilmer. A total of 14 were ordered. They will be installed by company.
Coordinating Committee would like PCWG to assemble a Best Practices web site to host how-to-do-its for certain procedures. PC coordinators should come to the next meeting with some candidates for Best Practices in mind.
The next meetings is scheduled for March 19. As usual, on Tuesday, 10AM in the TSB Conference Room.
