Access Services and the Reference Wiki
We talked about the way that Access Services staff have been adding pages regularly to the reference wiki and whether it might be worth renaming the wiki the “Public Services Wiki” to reflect this evolution.
Contracts and Vendor Relations
The increased demand by the state for documentation of interactions with vendors was explored.
With the events at Harvard University in mind (the email of deans was searched by administrators trying to find the source of leaks about a cheating scandal), we discussed privacy issues in Baruch’s systems (email, Blackboard, etc.) and the Facebook page, Baruch Secrets (the Ticker covered Baruch Secrets in a story in January).
New Summon Interface
Summon, the service that powers Bearcat Search, will be getting a major overhaul in June. We looked at some of the new features.
