Linda Garcia (Lower Columbia College)
09:58
I worked in Billings @ Montana State Univeristy Billings
Amy Herman
14:29
I'm waiting for a quote from OCLC for hosted EZproxy (we currently self-host) and am getting impatient. If someone wouldn't mind giving me a ballpark annual fee in a private chat message I'd appreciate it...
Amy Herman
18:31
Thanks everyone!
Kirsti Thomas (Seattle Colleges)
19:06
Authentication is getting more complicated. ;)
Laura Staley_Library
20:07
Our EZProxy is down right now too.
cassandra.miller
21:09
We got it long enough ago that I forgot about the one time set-up fee!
Amy Herman
26:15
nurse's pocket guide diagnose
Dan Moore
31:58
General question related to this - what can I do to dedup a local physical item with a CDI ebook?
Kirsti Thomas (Seattle Colleges)
34:14
Maybe the Thu. meeting this week or next could focus on Primo dedup questions?
Dan Moore
34:35
+1 Kirsti
Dan Moore
35:27
Thanks for confirming that
Kirsti Thomas (Seattle Colleges)
35:32
I've got to run to another meeting. Chiao!
Dan Moore
35:39
Yeah I'd love to spend the hour working with y'all on it
Lesley Caldwell (Pierce College, she/her)
36:20
Can we record that Thursday one, please? :)
Dan Moore
41:15
Unrelated to Alma but is everyone's schools requiring vaccine verification for students?
cassandra.miller
41:24
Yes
Dan Moore
41:28
Or maybe I'll put it this way - is your school NOT doing verification?
Laura Staley_Library
41:45
We are doing attesting, not verification.
Dan Moore
41:59
All campuses are vaccinated, BUT each campus can do attestation only or attest+verify
Paula Laine
42:02
Bellevue is a vaccinated campus.
Amy Herman
42:04
We had student self-reporting of vaccinated status and then they are doing spot checks to verify the actual vaccination cards
Lesley Caldwell (Pierce College, she/her)
42:04
We did verification, but we have almost 20% religious exemption
Dan Moore
42:07
Edmonds is attest only
Lily Kun (SPSCC; she/her)
42:11
SPSCC is a vaccinated campus. Everybody needs to verify that they are vaccinated.
Elena Bianco
42:25
No verification for online only students. Verification for students online. Of course, if the elearning students come into the library, nobody's checking 🙄
Dan Moore
42:41
we need a circ manager and an admin assistant
Dan Moore
42:46
please tell your friends!!!!
Laura Staley_Library
42:55
Renton has a Library coordinator/cataloger position open.
Amy Herman
43:59
We were told that 60% of students neither self-attested nor requested an exemption. In that case they MUST take only online classes. That seems crazy high, like maybe despite best efforts they aren't getting the word that we are a vaccinated campus?
Linda Garcia (Lower Columbia College)
44:50
We currently have an Adjunct Librarian position (currently MLIS/MLS students are encouraged to apply) and we'll be posting a part-time Library Assistant position soon.
Laura Staley_Library
45:42
Good to see you again, Sally.
Lily Kun (SPSCC; she/her)
45:48
Sally!!! Good to see you again.
Lesley Caldwell (Pierce College, she/her)
46:09
Wish we could do a pizza party for Sally like we did for Dale!
Sally Sheedy
47:03
Hi! Thanks for the hellos. Oh - Pizza is a good idea. We could each get our own pies and compare. :>)
Laura Staley_Library
48:29
Also, hi, Tammy!
cassandra.miller
48:58
Stirling has to be on the desk, so I'm on the call! They still have one semester left in the MLIS.
Lily Kun (SPSCC; she/her)
51:05
We're helping manage laptop and textbook checkouts from other departments and programs.
Elena Bianco
51:21
We only have other departments and IT using Alma for materials they are checking out to students, but those materials and laptops live in the library and we check them out.
Amy Herman
51:36
We were asked by our Digital Film department and also, I think, our I.T. department, for circulation of their devices. We declined because we don't have the staffing to deal with the initial cataloging and processing, or to deal with the constant turnover of their staffing.
cassandra.miller
52:23
Yes, we stopped keeping track of IT stuff a few years ago. It was very complicated and items kept getting declared "lost." We'd been doing it pre-alma. IT now has their own tracking system.
Dan Moore
53:55
We don't touch IT-owned things at all, but we made sure to manage loanable tech records in Alma
Lynn Robinson (BTC)
54:47
Traci Taylor has done some inventory. You could email her as she is not on the call today.
Tammy Siebenberg
55:19
What school is Traci at?
Laura Staley_Library
55:38
Yes, Tammy at Bellingham Tech worked on inventory this summer.
Laura Staley_Library
55:53
Traci at Bellingham Tech.
Naoko Yasuda (Highline)
56:15
I will email Traci, thanks!
Lynn Robinson (BTC)
56:42
Yes, Traci at Bellingham Tech.
