Nerissa, I can see the poll results
Bryan Baldus
17:07
We see them; I was an Other--not at a library
Margie Kirschbaum
24:43
Am curious about Lia's staff and others - did you assign database cleanup projects that can be done from home?
Jesse Lambertson
26:06
how have folks brought eResource or IR work to the fore, for those who may have previously dealt with mostly print materials?
Catherine Paltz
26:38
Did any of the panelists have a staff person who didn't have internet access, and if so how did they handle that?
Marina Morgan
26:58
Also, most applications do not work on a Mac. That was a challenge.
Christine DeZelar-Tiedman
28:01
We did have a few people with no home internet access. We gave them loaner laptops and a mobile hotspot
Erin Shield
28:06
We (purchased and) issued hot spots to staff without internet. Also laptops and other equipment. Tricky!
Gena George
28:14
How are people handling rush or priority requests from faculty for classes?
Andie Craley
33:05
Most challenging has been waiting for our campus ITS department to grant remote access to staff to campus workstations through the loaner campus owned laptops given to staff, so they can access our Polaris catalog that sits in a Terminal Services situation. Still waiting for 3 staff to gain remote access since requests submitted last summer. They can do a little at the library 1 day a week they are scheduled at the library, but can't catalog at home yet.
Patrick Harrington
33:14
We had issues with mobile hotspots when working with very large spreadsheets/datasets.
Erin Grant
34:49
Wow, I'm impressed and jealous of the institutions who got broader support for laptops and internet. We were able to order some laptops and prepaid wireless cards to fill our needs but those funds had to come from the portfolio's operational budget. So fortunately we didn't have to do that for everyone
Marina Morgan
35:45
With Sierra we opened a ticket and gave them our home IPs in order to work from home. This way we accessed Sierra from the web instead of downloading the app.
Margie Kirschbaum
35:47
our LIT was amazing - we had a lot of laptops available but the hotspots were acquired through campus IT
Pat Dunn
36:32
Our community college already had laptops for most staff. I copy-catalogued new books from invoices my boss sent in in an Excel file. Now working on weeding older books by deleting holdings recs.

Nerissa LINDSEY
38:07
"sad community zone record" so true
Hanley Cocks
39:05
Did anyone have student employees who still wanted/needed work?
Erin Grant
43:04
Most of ours have graduated and we haven't hired new ones, either - probably not until Fall
Laura Dicapo
43:15
this may be a bad question, however, do you think that more libraries will offer catalogers a possibility to work strictly from home after this current situation is over?
Pat Dunn
43:43
We still have student employees and work study students.
Diana Brooking (UW Seattle)
44:14
We had remote projects for students: database cleanup, record enhancement. Also the Libraries as a whole had various remote projects, like adding transcripts and other accessibility projects. But we are tending not to hire new students...
Ahmed Ramadan
44:19
At 344 Winchester, at Yale, Admin. now will furnish some books to certain staff to work as copy cataloging from home. Ahmed
Betsy Ferwerda
46:35
I must say as a Mom of two small children, one who was schooling from home, my boss was amazing. She understood if I didn't get much done some days and also realized that my children had to be my priority at the time.
Andie Craley
47:18
Hold monthly Teams Meetings with all Technical Services/Circulation staff (the staff have duties in both areas). Communication in Library Staff Teams channels.
Margie Kirschbaum
48:06
we have weekly Metadata Unit meetings, weekly TS Dept meetings and monthly all staff meetings
Phyllis Jones
52:25
As Rebecca suggested, small units probably don't need to meet formally, except as needed. Personally, once I got over the technology challenges (thanks to Rebecca's patience and expertise), I felt quite comfortable with the same forms of communications I favored on site -- mostly email. Zoom, with its visual component, was a nice addition.
Andie Craley
56:25
Special collections cataloging is waiting....items are at the Library and I am at home.
Margie Kirschbaum
57:20
we have someone now going in 2 days a week who will do a tiny bit of Special collections but otherwise it has come to a grinding halt
Andie Craley
58:49
We are only allowed 2 staff daily M-Thurs for limited hours: 1 daily Circ person for curbside pickup/any processing & cataloging/pickup and sorting of daily mail/check-in of periodicals, and 1 daily lab desk person to monitor the reservations for study table space and computer use at specific times on just our 1st floor.

Laura Dicapo
01:02:14

Jesse Lambertson
01:02:25
i do miss my bicycle commute ...
Margie Kirschbaum
01:02:38
thanks so much for giving me perspective on how we're all doing - I miss my walking commute!
Betsy Ferwerda
01:02:53
Love the free conferences!
Andie Craley
01:03:10
I can relate - haven't had my 2 hour commute every day (1 hr to and 1 hr back), and I have saved a lot of gas and oil changes :)
Andie Craley
01:03:40
Love the many free conferences - several new conferences this past year I never attended before :)
Andie Craley
01:05:41
Staff that is already a close-knit family has stayed so. And their flexibility, and their ability to take initiative in doing work without needing constant supervision has continued in the remote arena as well.
Richard Sapon-White
01:06:06
I haven't been in my office since last March - but I have had so much to do: catalog maintenance that I can do from home, overseeing a student doing some of that maintenance work, ebook cataloging that has skyrocketed, authority work (which is all online), virtual conferences, training staff, etc.
