Weeding project close to starting at Armstrong.

Armstrong will get a new ILL computer.

Hired a student for ls. still short but have enough to make do.

We have a student scheduled for Armstrong and Davis during ls. Need to figure out. (Update: Shawn has hired another person, so we should be set)

Discussion about student jobs and summer and 24/7

Courtesy hold shelf : if anyone wants to leave something at circ – leave it on the shelf with a note. If it’s expensive, leave it in Dan’s office and email people. No library items on the courtesy hold shelf, please.
Use the regular hold shelf

Janine – higher level student discussion
Budget, requirements, availability. Janine and Kim will explore the possibilities.

Laptops for the summer: No laptops from overseas. Dan will check with Helpdesk. (UPDATE: They hadn’t thought of it and will reach out to coordinators and see if they have a plan. We have a backup plan just in case…)

Carrels are done.

VT Historic Sites pass

FYI, we now have a pass for VT Historic Sites (Bennington Battle Monument, President Calvin Coolidge, Chimney Point, Hubbardton Battlefield, Senator Justin S. Morrill, Mount Independence, Old Constitution House, President Chester A. Arthur, and Eureka Schoolhouse and Baltimore Covered Bridge). It allows for free entry for up to 8 people in one vehicle. The pass is shelved next to the Echo pass (on the shelf with today’s DVD bookings, directly behind the student computers at Davis Circ) and circulates for 3 days.
