1. Systems Update

Scheduled Reimaging of Public Computers is complete

OIT Printing
Included in the new public image is the ability for RUL patrons to print to an OIT printer, if there is OIT Lab in the library. This only works on XP machines.

Calendar Project
Anne found a product that syncs mobile devices to the Zimbra calendar product and will begin testing by the end of the month.

PCWG Adobe Connect meeting

The PCWG had its Jan 19th meeting online using Adobe Connect Pro desktop videoconferencing software. The intent was to see if it could be used as a convenient alternative to the large room videoconferencing systems currently in use. We will discuss our finding at the next meeting. Joe A, John G, Nick G, Chris S, Andrew R, and Rich S. will research and test other desktop videoconference systems.
