Weekly Update — April 25, 2017

The tour moves on!

This year, the admin team has committed to visiting all of the Evergreen Indiana libraries to answer questions and get to know you better! Last week we visited Grant County:

“How many children’s dvds did my resident patrons transit in last month?”

The answer to that question and many more is going to be a lot easier to find out in the next few weeks! We’re implementing a required consortium-wide stat cat to target audience when reporting. Libraries are receiving shelving location lists this week to kick off a full conversion of all existing materials. The new stat cat will be required for all new and updated item records beginning on May 15, 2017. Once in place, we’ll release some new report templates that incorporate the new filters!

Deadlines

  • MassLNC Development Survey closes on May 5, 2017
  • Executive and subcommittee ballots are due by May 12, 2017.
  • The 2017 Bylaws amendment votes are due by May 31, 2017.

Maintenance News

We’ll be upgrading to Evergreen 2.12 overnight on May 6-7, 2017. The downtime should be minimal and begin after all libraries are closed. No local staff client updates will need to be made. Once completed we’ll be production testing the web client in anticipation of its official release this fall.

Weekly Update — April 18, 2017

On the road!

This year, the admin team is hitting the road to visit all of the member libraries. We’re touring your buildings, answering questions, and collecting ideas and feedback for current and future projects. We’ll be taking pictures and collecting info to highlight a few things that are unusual or extra special at your library to share with the community! Our first visits took place in late March.
