December 15, 2003

Training

Express mail—highest priority in that category
John and Beth work on a 1 page handout
Netscape—as well or better than Eudora, CITES doesn’t officially support it.  Development path questionable for years?

FTP—get back to those 32 people about what kinds of questions they have.  Are they using pine?

Web technology
Is this a topic for a single presentation that John could give.  Beth will look to see if these are the same people.

Remote Access

messy topic
who has it working/
Who’s had problems with it?
How can we get people on an equal playing field?
Workshops are problematic
Prescreening questionnaire?
for laptop use, 3-4 weeks before ALA and/or SLA

Chat reference—refer names to David and Kathleen Kern
Reference use of internet—refer to public workshop

Networked public printing—departmental charge, overall, troubleshooting for patrons

Circ
--need a review session?
Catalog
