PC LEARNERS GROUP INFORMATION
The PC Learners Group has learned of several resources for those
needing information about their PCs. we want to pass that infor-
mation along to everyone since ae all need assistance at one time
or another with our PCs. In the U.K. libraries, Tari Keller (7-
3801) can provide assistance with hardware problems while Margey
McQuilkin (7-3801) can be contacted for questions or problems
concerning software. Chris Corman and Brenda Ghaelian serve as
the liaisons from the Computing Center for the U.K. libraries.
we should not, however, go directly to Chris or Brenda. Contact-
Systems Administration (Tari or Margey) first as they may have
the answer to your question.
The Bluegrass PC Users Group is for anyone with an interest in
PCs. Dues are $12.00 per year for an individual. Family rates
exist. The group meets the fourth Saturday of every month in
Room 325 of the Business and Economics Building at 1:00 p.m.
Contact Chris Corman at the Computing Center for additional
information. (Submitted by Laura whayne.)

We decided that the survey would be divided into three

(“““"”” were given two weeks to complete the two~page survey. At
‘ MMMMMEHW , the end of the two week period, J5 surveys were returned.

After several meetings of reviewing and discussing the

_ quwmw recommendations.
(606) 7.57-5730
M Db In the section on Physical Conditions, temperature
W 1 \’3I’y _ a
,wLNBmgw control, enhancing the work area, and better regulation
wwwmv of computer time were the areas mentioned most often and
‘“““”“" most strongly. Realizing that the heating and air
mmmmummmgumw conditioning units cannot be replaced in the entire
Q&¤¤MM¤¤M=%w¤ library system, the Committee recommends purchasing more
gg;$@“ space heaters and fans for those areas which must
maintain a cooler temperature in the summer and hotter
MMMUMMY temperature in the winter to accommodate the rest of the
Z;6 Fine gt; Building     o
(606) zsv-zsoo _
We also recommend that a space planning consultant from
the Design and Construction Office on campus be asked to
examine work space within the library system and
especially the third floor+of King. The concerns
reflected in the survey (specific to the third floor of
. An Equal Opportunity Univvrsit '
3 y I

 King) indicated a large, noisy open area that was
detrimental to productivity, New wall dividers and carpet
might not only enhance the area, but alleviate some of the
noise and congestion. An expert in this area might be able
to offer some inexpensive solutions to this problem.
Additionally, we recommend that supervisors revies che
schedules of those operating computers to ensure that there
are ample breaks for those who are in front of screens more
. than two hours at a time. Also, terminal schedules should
. be reviewed so that those sharing computers are ani; to
rotate on and off them with enough frequency to cowynete
their work. There may be a need for more compu;s~;4 but
further investigation into the situation is suggesiel ·.·,
In the section on Job Satisfaction, respondents J »»er— ~»..
whelmingly urged more recognition and encouragement of
their work efforts, 2) wanted to be kept better ¤ formed
about what was happening in the library system and »no to
contact for problems, and 3) indicated an interest ‘¤ a job
sharing program and cross-training. Therefore, w‘e
Committee recommends that a concerted effort be mace by the
Administration to keep supervisors aware of the “~ <@
Resource Department’s programs on effective man.;~¤ent and
communication. Rewarding employees with praise ·¤~ts
nothing and can accomplish more for morale and gon
satisfaction than other tangible kinds of incent*~ts
We also suggest supervisors use the Green Bean as a means
to publicly acknowledge staff for outstanding work/effort
in their departments.
‘ In addition, the Committee recommends that a directory of
‘ each department be compiled and updated annually. I;
‘ should contain not only names, but also job " -
` responsibilities. The directory will aid new employees in
learning who works in the library system and will also help
other staff know who to call in each department when
problems arise. _
The Committee also recommends that more information be made
available to supervisors about cross—training and job
sharing. Benefits of these programs to the library include ' _
stress reduction, less job "burn out", and increased
communication within the whole library system. Details of
job sharing and cross—training could be made available in
the Green Bean and in Staff Development and ACTS programs.
In the final area, Orientation and Training, the Committee
concludes the ACTS Orientation for staff members is doing a
good job. We also conclude that respondents feel they are
being trained adequately.
4

 The Committee realizes that many of its recommendations are
less precise than others. For those that involve "making
supervisors aware" and “developing programs" we suggest
l that the new staff member, Margie McQuilkin, might be
, instrumental in planning and coordinating these training
and informational programs. We would prioritize the
- presentation of these programs based on our survey results
as followst 1) effective communication and management
training, 2) computer training programs, 3) stress and time
· management programs, and 4) job sharing/cross training
‘ information. . ` p
In conclusion, the Committee wants to report that were many
favorable comments found in the survey. There was much
more satisfaction than dissatisfaction in all three
surveyed areas. Library staff indicated an especially
strong camaraderie with fellow staff members, enjoyed a
friendly working atmosphere, and liked the busy and diverse ‘
work in their departments.
In order that there be opportunities for staff to share
their perceptions of their working conditions on a regular
basis and for purposes of follow—up to our recommendeiions,
the Committee recommends that the clerical and technical
staff be surveyed every two years. Staff input into
decisions affecting working conditions will promote
positive feelings toward the library system.

 INFO/EXPO CONGRATULATIONS
The following letter was receiveu by Rob Aken from John Dinsmore
of John Dinsmore & Associatea:
1 warmest regards and since;est congratulations to you and all
persons connected with tue Fall @989 UK INFO/EXPO, upon the
accomplishment of what I perceive as a real turning point in the
introduction of informatlti technology to the UK community, as
well as those of us outeiue or ui who are interested in such
developments. I was higbé_ impressed by the professionalism of
the exhibitors, the present —r commercial vendor exhibits, and
the general excitement mulch pulsated throughout the Student
Union Ballroom. You have so rec i real coup with this event, and
I Stmnqlx €¤¤¤..ur¤.9¢,.-i};e;,_ie;s2?;_l;>laai%i.iua~
As I may have mentioned to you previously, my involvement in the
information technology community, beginning in the 1960s, has led
me to many, often diversified, situations where the presentation
of technology has included the mindboggling COMDEX computer show
in Las Vegas. The Fall IQSQ UK INFO/EXPO represents, to me, a
most formidable and successful grass roots effort to let people
. know what's going on here in central Kentucky. . .
