Peak Librarian (Library-related human interest) 


00:08:55    Wade Guidry:
00:12:38    Lesley Caldwell (Pierce College, she/her):    Good one!
00:14:00    Wade Guidry:
00:14:00    Lesley Caldwell (Pierce College, she/her):    Correct
00:17:11    Maryanne Hirning-LCC:    I love it! Looks great, Wade!
00:22:35    Lesley Caldwell (Pierce College, she/her):    You can do a vertical menu too, Wade
00:24:10    Jennifer Rohan:    drop-down menus are not as accessible.  Side navigation may be the way to go (though that gives you less real estate per page)
00:25:02    Lesley Caldwell (Pierce College, she/her):    side-navigation is what I meant by vertical -- haha. Sorry!
00:25:18    Jennifer Rohan:    I don't believe Libguides would allow for both side and drop-down....
00:25:24    Nicole Longpre:    Bellevue changed all of its guides to side navigation
00:25:35    Melinda Martin:    I also prefer side nav.
00:26:51    Nicole Longpre:    We are watching CTC Link training videos. They are not great.
00:33:08    Elena Bianco:    Thanks for doing that Wade. It will be useful when we move to ctcLink in Oct.
00:33:58    CB - Aberdeen, WA:    October looms larger than end-of-FY :)
00:34:13    Laura Staley - Renton Tech:    It will. There's a lot of education that needs to be done around ctcLink, and this will really help.
00:34:50    Nicole Longpre:    I agree, this looks great!
00:41:26    Nicole Longpre:    Can you give the direct link to the Guides?
00:41:55    Wade Guidry:
00:42:02    Nicole Longpre:    Ok, thanks!
00:43:29    Sally Sheedy:    Thanks for asking Nicole. My WACTCLC bookmark went to the old site.
00:44:45    Sally Sheedy:    So if you want to see the old site, for whatever reason, it can still be accessed:
00:45:29    Nicole Longpre:    We go live right when registration happens. No great
00:46:07    Nicole Longpre:    They pushed to Nov.
00:46:23    Nicole Longpre:    Yes winter registration
00:46:32    Jennifer Rohan:    l think there are different dates for DG5?  Green River goes live Oct. 11
00:47:31    Rhonda Kitchens:    October sounds good
00:47:52    Nicole Longpre:    Bellevue is just...special
00:50:05    CB - Aberdeen, WA:    I asked about RDA toolkit, and have missed all the discussion. yikes!
01:00:16    Nicole Longpre:    What does "expensive" mean?
01:00:51    Nicole Longpre:    There are a lot of nuances
01:01:04    Sally Sheedy:    I had seen a fine associated with someone in my daughter's high school debate team. I knew for sure that she had "moved on" and wasn't kept awake nights thinking about her fine.
01:01:15    Sally Sheedy:    oh, my daughter is 28, for context
01:02:36    Lesley Caldwell (Pierce College, she/her):    We did big purge before we went to Alma in 2017. So it will probably be time to another next year since it will somehow be 2022.
01:02:38    Jennifer Rohan:    yes, I was at that webinar and VERY happy to hear that!
01:03:12    Nicole Longpre:    Our IT folks are happy that CTC Link only goes back 6 years. They had been told to keep everything.
01:06:41    Lesley Caldwell (Pierce College, she/her):    Really happy for her though!
01:07:22    Nicole Longpre:    Have a good week everyone!
01:07:47    Sally Sheedy:    My friend sent it  - it is very interesting.
01:07:53    Lesley Caldwell (Pierce College, she/her):    You too, Nicole. I'm going to run too. +1 to the article Wade is sharing
01:08:31    Elena Bianco:    Thanks Wade, and all! Have a good week!
01:08:39    Maryanne Hirning-LCC:    Thanks, Wade!
01:08:47    Sally Sheedy:    Her own personal collection of books were organized in a fashion of her own design
01:08:57    Jennifer Rohan:    Thank you!
01:08:59    CB - Aberdeen, WA:    Thanks, all
01:09:03    Sally Sheedy:    Thanks.
