|Tompkins Cortland Community College has joined
Fredonia and Oswego in using the SUNYConnect LMS (ALEPH500). TC3's "switch to
production" (STP) occured August 29, 2001.
"It's kind of exciting really. I'd like to finish this up," said Ms. Linda Frank of the ALEPH implementation. Linda, Librarian for Automated Systems, had help with this process from (among others) fellow TC3ers, Dave Lewis and Steve Massey-Crouch.
Just prior to STP, Linda said, "It feels good -- I have a whole list of things to work on and I'm making progress". But was Linda speaking of the ALEPH implementation or the other big project -- the marriage of her daughter during summer 2001?
TC3 joins Oswego in having successfully migrated their Multilis data to the ALEPH system. Thanks to Ex Libris' Mr. Galen Charlton for his efforts in this regard. Oswego and TC3's Syracuse Cluster colleagues (at Broome, Cayuga, Cortland, Herkimer, Morrisville, Onondaga and Upstate Medical) are just beginning the ALEPH implementation process.
The end of summer brought a number of events to folks at Tompkins Cortland: a marriage, and a new library system. "I am very happy to be going to 'production'", Linda announced just before the new semester's students showed up. In addition, TC3 Instruction Librarian, Barbara Kobritz, went to the ALA conference where she accepted TC3's "2001 EBSCO Community College Library Program Achievement Award." TC3 won the award for their "Detectives in the Classroom" faculty instruction program.
SUNY OLIS appreciates the constructive attitude and good humor with which TC3 has approached the task of implementing ALEPH: Library Director "Bill [Demo] gave me a can of STP", reported Linda Frank. "I already drank mine," Dave Lewis responded.
