Re: [IUG] Innovative System Coordinator Training
[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]
I went for Millennium Training after being a systems librarian for about 6
years. Through trial and error, I had picked up some of the material they
taught on my own, but much of it was new to me.
One of the greatest advantages I found was hearing the basic assumptions
that the trainer (Jason Boland of III, who's great) made about our system.
He knew which of our settings were typical, and which were weird (or were
legacy things that should have been changed a long time ago). Also, there
were several times during the training when he told the group what we should
see on our systems (in the OPAC, Millennium, or even the character-based
system), and it didn't match up with what we actually saw. He was able to
work through it with us, either explaining some reasons why it might be
different, or in some cases, simply turning on features and functions that
had never been activated.
Hope this helps,
