Campus Community Can Now Access
Library Accounts with Network ID
The Kelvin Smith Library (KSL) recently unveiled a new and improved method for accessing library accounts.
Instead of PIN accounts, Case Western Reserve faculty, staff and students can now use their Case network ID and password to access library information. Whether it is students checking out materials for a class, faculty conducting research, or staff members gathering information for their department, the same login information can be used for library accounts, the Software Center, staff directories and campus-protected sites.
"It's such a small thing, but it makes such a difference in your day–and it's not just new convenience. It really does make your work more effective when you can log in with Single Sign On," said Karen Oye, head of customer services at KSL.
"The KSL Tech Team and I worked with our catalog vendor and the Case LDAP group to make this possible," said Mike Yeager, analyst programmer. "It's one less password to remember!"
You'll still use a library PIN, though, especially when traveling or away from an office computer. Learn more.

For Faculty and Staff
Resources are available from University Archives to help departments and offices determine how long records need to be kept, which ones should be transferred to the archives for long-term preservation, and how to dispose of records containing confidential information. Records disposition schedules are a well-established tool to ensure that records are kept as long as needed. Schedules are available online. Guidelines for records that should be transferred to the archives also are available online.

Chad Fusco is a recipient of the prestigious Laureate Award of Tau Beta Pi, the national engineering association. Engineering students are eligible for induction if they are in the top eighth of their junior class or top quarter of their senior class. The Laureate Award recognizes student members who outstandingly exemplify the "spirit of liberal culture in engineering colleges." The award is selective—since its inception in 1982, only 68 Laureates have been named. Fusco was nominated for his involvement in the arts. As an undergraduate, he was actively involved with the Footlighters and in Eldred Theater productions. He graduated summa cum laude in May with a bachelor's degree in civil engineering and a minor in theater. He will attend graduate school at Case Western Reserve in the fall.
