Training Prep

On Thursday, September 16, the Library Board of Trustees gave the staff permission to close on Wednesday, October 6 for one day of the training on our new ILS. We will have training on Monday, October 4th to Wednesday, October 6th. Below is our schedule:
  • Monday, Oct. 4 - Conference Room, 9 am - 4 pm. Koha Administration, Server Administration and Reports.
  • Tuesday, Oct. 5 - Conference Room, 9 am - 4 pm. Cataloging, Acquisitions, and Serials.
  • Wednesday, Oct. 6 - Tech Center, 9am - 4 pm. Circulation and OPAC

We chose the Conference Room for the smaller training sessions since we can get 8 laptops around the table, plus there is a projector and screen so that the instructor's examples will be seen by all.

The Tech Center has 27 workstations so that all of the staff can be trained at once for these more heavily used modules.

Now, we need to inform the public on our closure. Library Services Manager, Darlene Bradley, sent out a press release. Cathi placed a blurb on our website and posters and handouts are being designed.

In anticipation of this closure we set our current ILS system to bypass October 6th as a due date for any materials...and we have planned a pizza lunch for all staff on the day we are closed.
