1. Systems Update

SMLR is getting public network printing.

The 2003 server will go live at the end of the month.

2. Needs Survey

The survey has been posted and advertised. It will stay up for 2 weeks. PC Coordinators should make sure that shared machines are included in the survey. PC Coordinators should retrieve the responses from their units at the conclusion of the survey.

3. PC Replacement Plan

38 machines have been ordered to replace all Windows 95 machines in the library system. They should arrive in 14 working days. These are Pentium 4 machines running Windows 2000 and feature 17" flat panel displays, 40Gb hard drives, optical mice, and CD burners.

4. Backup Policy

Nick related the comments of TSC regarding the PCWG Saving and Backup Policies and Procedures document. John will try to incorporate TSC's concerns into a revised draft for discussion next month. Anne will draft a Best Practices document on saving to removable media as well.

5. Training

Grace Agnew joined us to relay that cabinet feels that PCWG should be more involved in PC training in two ways: 1. Orientation for new employees and 2. Marilyn Wilt's training workshops. After Grace's presentation group members were encouraged to write down procedures they follow regularly to introduce new hires to the computer resources at RUL. This will be discussed next month. We will be in contact with Marilyn Wilt regarding what we can do to help her training operation.

4. Old/New Business


5. Future Meeting Dates

The next meeting is scheduled for April 20, 2004 at TSB.
