iPads are ready to circulate

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Circulation now has four iPads for your borrowing pleasure. Until we get all of the workflow wrinkles ironed out, we are going to try to keep circulation internal (LIS staff only). So stop by and check one out (which is so blatant as to not even qualify as a pun, intended or not).

Office 2010 and 2011 install discs at Circ

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

An error has been discovered in the install discs for Microsoft Office 2010 and 2011, so they are getting fixed by the Helpdesk. Unfortunately, this means that if you have used these discs to install the software at home, you will need to re-install once the discs are fixed. Stay tuned to this post for an update as to when they are available again. Also – if anyone thinks this should be a broader post than just LIS staff, please feel free to re-categorize.

NExpress down Friday evening

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Innovative informed me that one of two fans in our Central INN-Reach server kicked-the-bucket. They will have to bring down the server to swap out the hardware. They will do this at 5:30 pm Friday August 26, 2011. They predict that it will take approximately 30 minutes complete. All central system activities, the catalog, request processing, etc. will be down during this time.

Compliments!

I also want to take this opportunity to tell you that I have heard only positive feedback about the library staff this summer – thank you!

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Users can now see today’s hours from the LIS web pages. The “All Hours” link takes users to the full Google Calendar, which has a pull-down menu for the various service points. More locations will be added in the coming days. Special thanks to the LIS Website Team, Carrie, and Ian for making this happen!
