December 2008 Archives


Facilities Management is painting the walls in the serials area today (Friday 12/12/08) and Monday (12/15/08). Phuoc sent the following info out to serials students and staff:

You may notice that I have removed all materials, stuffs, and post-it notes on the problem daily shelves in your working area because facilities workers will come this afternoon to remove all these shelves and possibly paint the walls in the staff area today (Per Gloria) and maybe in the student working area on Monday. Gloria is currently working on patching holes in the walls in the students and staff areas. . In case you're looking for your stuff, here are the temporary locations: Chinese materials: on the shelf in Laura's working area, between Amy and Elaine's cubicles. Not found materials A-E and F-Z: on the desk in Laura's working area Post-it notes: Re-post it on the shelf above the magazine table Student Manuals: on the shelf by Cole's working area

Kim and Elaine , I put the materials found on Thursday and Friday problem shelves on your chair or truck

I have requested a yellow truck in case you need to use it because all the shelves will be removed this afternoon. Also please don't put anything on the shelves this morning. If you have any questions, please contact me.



UPDATE: Monday December 15, 2008 from Kim Tran:

This is an update from Barb Smith regarding to finishing up with the painting. Barb said the painting will be done tomorrow afternoon . I will need to call her once is done, so she could contact IT to arrange the time to install all the computers and putting everything back. I did ask if I needed to contact IT. She said she will take care of that.
