Random Color of the Day - Drug Testing

Anbolyn shared the site where people can see if they're supposed to go in for drug testing (usually court-ordered): Click on "Random Colors of the Day."
I know they can call in and get the colors of the day, which would probably be a better option. The telephone for TASC is 602-254-7328.

Slow Gmail tip

From Saren's email:
Just wanted to let you know that Gmail has been kind of slow to connect on the public computers today, and may not connect at all for customers. I had Paul take a look at it, and there is probably not much he can do about it right now, but he did say when customers are trying to connect to Gmail and it is not loading, they can click on a link on the lower right hand side of their screen, which would say Load Basic. This should speed up the connection process.

No trash in new image

Paul informed me that there is no trash in the new image. When someone deletes something, it is permanently deleted. No need to find it to delete it permanently from the trash any more!

New Weeding Procedure

Ginger's email:
We have a new method of counting the number of items that we weed/deselect/pull from the collection. This method will distinguish those things that we withdraw due to age, condition, inaccuracy etc. from those that we lose via other means such as missing, lost, damaged, claims returned.

Beginning April 1 change the location on those items that you are physically (item in hand) pulling from the collection to a new home location called WEEDED .

This is easily accomplished by using the global edit feature in workflows. This applies to all materials other than periodicals. Periodicals still need to be deleted. A monthly report will be run that will change all items that have the home location of WEEDED to a home location of delete.

Culture Passes in catalog

Myron fixed it so that you can find Culture Passes in the catalog. Best way is to do a Title Search for "Culture Pass" or a keyword for "Culture Pass Program."
