  6. Adobe Photoshop 7.0 for Erich in the DLC – Debra checked today – it’s not listed on their site yet, but will be ordered once it appears.
  7. Software development tools? None needed for our staff.
Support Issues and Liaisons
  1. Ongoing security system problems.
  1. Browser issue continues – Jana unable to view files on NT11. Just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it can’t be accessed. If necessary, Suzy can fix the files she needs to work on.
  2. Need to get SAN installed in our back server room (tape vault). Part of the SAN is destined for MSL – Bill will check on the progress of determining the power and location.
Software Projects Status
  1. FilmLog XML is finished. It was demoed for Gus, Cathy & Nelda. They were very pleased and signed-off on it. They do have changes to a new section requested.
  2. DLC Bryant display page – Hilton has finished.
  3. Cynthia is working on Current Net spreadsheets converted to a Web accessible page. It’s SQL, updates and sorts info with editing capability.
  4. ILLIAD – 14 digit ID – weekly download from NOTIS. Winston updates now, is working to fix the update to happen more frequently. Import validation table has to be in their format – real time – deactivation is the problem. Have to sync both versions.
Web Projects
  1. Suzy hired a new student, Nithia Rabkumair. She will start on May 6, OPS. She will be on a timecard. She also works at MSL. Need to make sure she gets her info to Debra.
DP Coordinator
  1. All of the current Systems students will be gone for the summer (two graduating, one going home). Debra has listed the position with Library Personnel. Evelyn’s daughter is in the market and will be contacting Debra about the position soon.
