Minutes of August 12, 2003 meeting

1) August downtime

IRIS will be migrated to a new server. Chris anticipates the system will be down for reindexing this coming weekend only, when all libraries are closed. If more time is needed, a read-only version of IRIS will be available Mon. morning. Notices will not run and PALCI will not be available during downtime. Systems staff expects the new server will speed other processes and routine reports as well.

2) In-library use loan periods for RDS items

The group agreed to recommend extending the loan period from 3 to 5 days, giving items a 10 day-due date. Before we begin, Judy will discuss with Jeanne how to alert librarians via the councils.

3) Lost Load date and patron status

We agreed to a definition of currently enrolled student and currently employed faculty/staff based on the last load dates in their WorkFlows user records. Employees are current if their last load date is on or after the previous month. Students are current if their last load date is on or after the previous month Oct-Apr, on or after the previous Apr. from May-Aug., and on or after the previous May in Sept. A table with examples will be included in the next revision of the borrower charts.

4) Misc. Updates

5) Announcements, Information Sharing

Next Meeting: Thursday, Sept. 11, 9:30-11:30 a.m.
