System Director's Report:  M. Van Pelt noted the local news has been reporting on the Madison Central grand opening and they tout the availability of wi-fi and the 100 PCs.  SCLS Technology and ILS staff worked hard to make sure that everything was in place for the grand opening festivities.   In addition to wi-fi and the PCs, they also worked on a printing solution, the conversion of 1000's of items and holds in Koha, the self checks and gates, the MUFN network and more.  This is the largest opening project SCLS has ever done.  It was at times very difficult and there were many hurdles but they opened on time and the technology and ILS work was done well in advance!
