PALS recently upgraded the East Grand Forks Campbell Library to Evergreen 2.3. The latest Evergreen release has improved acquisitions and serials functionality, many stability and security improvements and an additional OPAC interface designed specifically for children.
PALS staff members (Stephen Elfstrand, Carrie Curie, Simon Mai, Dee Nolan, and Alex Kent) greatly enjoyed attending the Evergreen International Conference in Vancouver, B.C. from April 10-13.
It is my pleasure to announce that Carrie Curie has joined the PALS Training and Support Team.
Many of you know her already, from her more than eight years at Minnesota State Community and Technical College-Moorhead Campus. There, her knowledge of Aleph made her a key player in all library activities. Carrie has served on many of the Consortium of MnPALS Libraries User Groups, Steering Committees and Task Forces, so she knows the consortium as well. Carrie will be providing support to both our Aleph and Evergreen customers.
Carrie grew up and attended college in Ohio. In 2003, she graduated from Kent State University with a MLIS.
Two of her favorite activities are reading books (in any format) and watching movies. She enjoys working on art and craft projects, although she freely admits that her attempts at knitting and crocheting turned out less than perfect. She is also looking forward to practicing on her French horn in her new apartment.
