Update: Service Disruption Notification

Library IT trialled a fully automated disruption notification service from December 2014 through February 2015. Shortly thereafter we asked staff to participate in a short survey to evaluate the trial and found that the majority of survey respondents indicated a desire to see the service continue as an opt-in offering.

For those that provided feedback we thank you very much for your participation and helpful comments. We are pleased to announce that the disruption notification opt-in service is now available to all. Please take a moment and join the new opt-in mailing list at the following address: http://web.library.yale.edu/lit/email-alerts

If you are a supervisor or department head interested in registering your entire group, or you would like to recommend the monitoring of other public services, please coordinate with Cindy Greenspun (cindy.greenspun@yale.edu) in Library IT.  Please route all other questions or comments to Ray Frohlich (raymond.frohlich@yale.edu).

Library IT creates list of technology services for staff

The User Experience group and the IT Infrastructure & Client Services group recently collaborated on a survey of productivity services used by Library staff. You can see the survey results here.

Informed by this survey, Library IT created a comprehensive list of available services, systems and software for staff to use in doing their work. Some of these are supported by Library IT, some by central Yale ITS, and some are simply freely available.

With this list of services, LIbrary IT hopes to make some recommendations towards which services are best suited for library staff use in a particular context. As services evolve, mature and decline this list will also be updated accordingly. Please feel free to consult the page, or anyone in Library IT, if you have questions about which service will best suit your purposes.
