EuclidPLUS vs. Library Catalog
The university's integrated library system that manages circulation/OhioLINK functions, as well as cataloging, collection budget control, acquisitions and other core library technology functions, has for the past ten years been known as "EuclidPLUS."
Over the next few months we will transition from the name "EuclidPLUS" to the more generic "Library Catalog." Publications and web references will be changed gradually to phase out the older name which no longer has meaning in a much broader technology environment. It is anticipated that the web public library catalog user interface will have a major facelift and overhaul over the course of the next year.

KSL Technology Team Reorganization
The KSL Technology Team has recently had a reorganization that will more closely align staffing patterns with library technology priorities, which include the upcoming phase one implementation of Digital Case and tighter integration of Library Catalog functions with other library operations.
As part of this reorganization, Barbara Anderson, INNOPAC system librarian, has left the university. Michael Yeager is now responsible for day-to-day management of the Library Catalog and is the lead contact to OhioLINK.

New Residential Village Open House
There was an open house for the new North Residential Village today. It is very lavish (and reminded me that the dorm I stayed in during my first two undergraduate years was a prison in comparison). I took some pictures and posted them to my flickr.com site. You can find them here.
