Cataloging, Collections and Technical Services

Gil Kenner and Ken Winter attended the annual TRB LIST Committee meeting this quarter. Gil Kenner subsequently was invited to join the LIST committee. A proof of concept of the ongoing project to digitize the VDOT Bulletin in OCLC’s ContentDM was finalized with the help of James O’Leary. Gil Kenner received the the VTRC “Employee of the Year” award. Finally, several improvements to EOS KnowledgeBuilder databases were made making Literature Searches and TA Projects more searchable.
