Cataloging, Collections and Technical Services
Gil Kenner gave a brief presentation on library services at the fall BRAC meeting. Work began with VTRC administrative staffers Mary Bennett and Emily Pudliner to add Implementation Funded Projects to the Technical Assistance Project Database in the library's catalog. Gil also worked with Ken Winter on instructions for a guide to the new Skillsoft Books interface.
