nce upon a time, there were 2 different groups of SCLS staff supporting 2 collections of library PCs on 2 different networks -- "LINK" and "non-LINK." In 2010, SCLS combined these groups of people and began the process of bringing the non-LINK PCs onto the SCLS network. Not all libraries had the infrastructure, bandwidth, or compatible hardware to make the switchover right away, but we finally hit a milestone last week --- all SCLS-supported PCs are now on the SCLS network with standard SCLS configurations. "Non-LINK" is no more, and we now just have "SCLS PCs." (and everyone lived happily ever after)
Hip Hip Hooray!
What does this mean for member libraries?
- standard configurations
- streamlined processes
- regular updates
- SCLS-supported PCs on SCLS-supported networks
which all translates to lower costs and BETTER SUPPORT.
