12 How many of you can say that one year down the line you’ll be able to find that regarding policy changes? Then there’s the issue of finding information years down the road … Nicole C. Engard – Computers in Libraries 2007

13 Jenkins’ Solution - Blogs Web-based & full-text searchable Archived & backed up Visible to all staff – no one is left out Fewer s in our inboxes Conversational ( -like) format Date and time stamps Ability to link to relevant pages & comments Nicole C. Engard – Computers in Libraries 2007

14 What does our staff think? Nicole C. Engard – Computers in Libraries 2007

15 The projects section is my favorite part of the intranet. They allow us to blend our ideas and keep an eye on what is going on in our very busy organization. Even when I am not working directly on a project, it allows me to contribute. It creates a library without departmental borders. From a cataloger's perspective, things are classified together neatly and never lost. - Katrina Piechnik (Head of Technical Services) Nicole C. Engard – Computers in Libraries 2007

16 Kathy Coon – Deputy Director It has cut down on some of the clutter in my inbox. Now that the important facts are on the project pages, I no longer save everything! It's great having everything related to a project in one place. When I worked on my annual report last year, it helped put the year in perspective. Nicole C. Engard – Computers in Libraries 2007
