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.

Any re-shelvers out there?

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Are you bored in your work? Need to do something that really gets your brain working? Want to get out and see the world?

I can’t help you.

But if you want, you can help us; Circulation is asking for volunteers to help with the end-of-term re-shelving. If you are interested, please stop by the circulation desk.

New Keyboards at Circ; Checking OUT Equipment at Circ Desk

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Greetings Circ Staff Students and Supervisors,

We now have 3 new MUSIC KEYBOARDS in our equipment inventory! Dan just received the cases for them, so they are now tagged, cataloged and ready for checkout to our aspiring composers. Pretty cool, no-nonsense piece of equipment that utilizes a USB.

Also, when it comes to equipment, we are in a steady successful rhythm for our CHECK-IN procedure at the desk.  Now I am reminding everyone who CHECKS OUT equipment, to please notice that all items are inside of each case during check-out, with particular attention to laptop checkouts. We have had instances lately where patrons have told us that a mouse or a VGA adapter was not in the case when they brought their equipment home. To avoid this, I have been checking the laptop cases “behind the scenes” in the cabinet. It will also be helpful for everyone to pay attention to this as well during checkout, especially since we need to open each case to scan the bar codes.  Thanks for your attention to this.

“Plug-In, Log-In” Reminder for Faculty/Staff Members!

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

With Spring semester beginning, we find ourselves amidst a busier laptop checkout period. We would like to remind all laptop borrowers that before you leave the library, each computer (Mac and/or PC) will need to be hooked up to our ethernet cord, along with a power connector at the desk, so you are able to type your user name/password. This process allows you to access your files in wireless mode while you are off campus. We will remind you of this when you come to the Circulation Desk, but please keep this in mind as well. We want you to enjoy your laptop borrowing experience without inconveniences.
