Library's Journal Funding Restored
The results of the recent Library Journal Survey, completed by 1,330 employees, have helped spur the restoration of $580,000 to the Library's journal budget. This decision by Director Chu will allow the renewal of subscriptions to Elsevier and other journals and the addition of new subscriptions. The Berkeley Lab Library Committee (LLC) will determine the additions in consultation with ITSD and the Computing and Communications Services Advisory Committee (CSAC). Researchers can offer preferences or concerns to their LLC division representative.
Reminder to Netscape 4.75 Users: Time to Migrate to Mozilla
If you’re still using Netscape 4.75, ITSD encourages you to migrate to Mozilla as your standard browser and email client. The supported versions of Mozilla for Macs, PCs and Linux are on the download page. Starting this June, in order to minimize the cost of supporting old products, ITSD will be limiting support for Netscape 4.75 and assist users with conversion to the new standard wherever possible. ITSD will continue to evaluate browser and email clients for recommended use in the future.
