Placement of Barcode on New Books

After much discussion and consideration the committee has decided to concur with the recommendation that barcodes will now be placed on the front, left-hand side of new books (or as barcode are replaced). This placement will work with self-checkout. EZ Borrow books bands will need to be adjusted and placed on the back cover. Will pass the group’s conclusion along to Mary Beth Weber who will announce a start date and issue procedures.

Authentication Procedures for RUL

Judy prepared a chart which includes all the various library services which involve authentication. The chart shows type of user; type of credentials required; and how that authentication takes place. It will be posted on Access Services page.

Brief discussion and explanation about the chart ensued. Suggestion was made to include streaming video. A faculty members’ status of ‘active’ or ‘inactive’ is set by their department. It was noted that David Hoover and Sam McDonald can trouble-shoot/explain problems with the various kinds of authentication, proxy logs and LDAP.

For clarification, LDAP means Lightweight Directory Access Protocol.
