1. NORTH ENTRANCE TO GREEN NOW OPEN TO PUBLIC AND STAFF

The North Entrance to Green Library (Hoover Tower side, near the loading dock) is now open for both public and staff entry. An entry/exit portal will be operational at this location during all hours that the library is open.

Staff members who need to enter the building between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. should continue to enter through the Mailroom until key card access is implemented.

Furthermore, the first floor corridor has been reopened. Access to the University Librarians' Offices and the Systems Department on the second floor is available via both the stairs and elevator. Elevator access from the first floor corridor to the lower level, the third floor, and other portions of the second floor will become available this summer.

2. MEYER COLLECTIONS MOVING TO SAL

The last phase of the redeployment of Meyer Library print materials to SAL (items in L.C. classes Q through Z) will begin on April 5. As in earlier phases, location changes will be reflected in the catalog on an overnight basis. By the end of next week, when this phase is complete, Meyer's third floor will house only those items designated for transfer to Green Stacks during the summer, the Raubitschek Collection of Epigraphy and Papyrology (to be returned to Green for Fall Quarter), and PUB96 titles awaiting full cataloging and classification prior to shelving in Green Stacks.

Once again, many thanks to all the staff who have participated in this project and especially to Adrienne Arden, Paul Davis, Sonny De La Pena, and Darsi Rueda.

3. NEW "SPEAKING OF COMPUTERS" FOR SPRING QUARTER

The Spring Quarter issue of "Speaking of Computers" is now being distributed. Produced by the Academic Computing group within SUL/AIR, this newsletter provides information about campus computing and technological activities and resources.

4. ROAMING DHCP PILOT IN LIBRARIES

Beginning on Monday, April 19th, SUL/AIR will allow patrons to use Roaming DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) in several branch libraries (the Art, Education and Earth Sciences branches). The project is a pilot program designed to help us prepare for wider use starting this summer.

Roaming DHCP will allow Stanford faculty, staff, and students to plug their laptop computers into network connections at these libraries, without special IP address specific to their locations. "Sitting down, plugging in, and getting on the network" should be immensely useful to library patrons.

Patrons wishing to use network connections in the libraries will need to register their laptops for roaming in NetDB. When asked, library staff will provide a sheet of very general directions; patrons will be directed to contact their department's Local Network Administrators (LNAs) for registration. Students who live on campus will be directed to their RCCs (Resident Computer Coordinators). In the case of departments without LNAs, staff can contact the ITSS Computer Resource Center (http://helpsu.stanford.edu) for NetDB registration assistance.

It is important to understand that library staff will not be able to troubleshoot problems for patrons. Other than providing a cheat-sheet with very general directions, they will only refer patrons experiencing problems to their LNAs or RCCs, or to a departmental Expert Partner for troubleshooting assistance.

The URL below will take you to Networking's page on Roaming DHCP set-up. If you have questions about these directions, please contact your consultant for assistance.

5. RITS PUBLICATIONS HAS NEW NAME, WEB SITE ADDRESS

SUL/AIR recently announced the name and Web site of its computing and technology organization, "Academic Computing." See last week's SUL/AIR News article New SUL/AIR Organization: Academic Computing.

As a result of this change, the RITS Publications group is now known as Academic Computing Publications; its Web site is located at:

http://acomp.stanford.edu/acpubs/

This Web site replaces the RITS Publications Web site, http://rits.stanford.edu/ritspub/. You will find all the popular RITS Publications documents, including "About Computing at Stanford" and the "Speaking of Computers" newsletter, at the new URL listed above.

The new Web address for Academic Computing Publications is effective immediately, so please make a note of it and change your bookmarks accordingly. If you have any questions, please send email to pubs@netserver.stanford.edu.
