In this week’s issue:
ECTU has Moved
The Extension Computing Technology Unit (ECTU – Lisa Gillis, Wayne Jardine and Victor Villegas) has moved from Ballard Hall to room #120 in the basement of the Milne Computing Center.
The reason for this move is to help improve our service to customers. With our reduced crew, it has been a challenge to maintain an adequate level of service, especially for our walk-in clients. Starting December 15, you will be able to drop-off/pick-up your computer equipment at the IS Service Desk in Milne. This will help insure there will be someone to assist you with your drop-off/pick-up needs. The Service Desk’s expanded hours (including weekends) increases the hours of availability and should make it easier to accommodate your schedule.
The IS Service Desk hours are:
Mon.-Fri.: 8am – 7pm
The Service Desk is located at Milne Computing Center #201.
Information Services has two permit parking spots on the east side of Milne, between Milne and Benton Hall (the music building) that can be used for quick drop-off and pick-ups. There are also meter spots nearby. Please park and run in to borrow the hang tag. You can find current parking map here:http://transportation.oregonstate.edu/parking/maps
Rest assured you will still have access to ECTU and we encourage you to drop by and visit us in our new location anytime.
If you have any questions, please contact Victor Villegas at 541-737-8255, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Digital Measures Update
From Linda Brewer:
THANKS to all of you who have begun to work on your year-end reporting. It reduces the rush across my inbox. Two items:
- I notice that as of today we have a new face on the login – and not just for DM. A welcome reminder of warmer times . . .
- So that the P&T CV report will ultimately work well for you:
a. Find the “Permanent Data” in the “General Information” section in DM
b. Update your record to indicate your hiring date (year alone is sufficient for this purpose) and Starting Rank
c. Update your advancements through the ranks as appropriate.
P&T report not yet perfectly perfect, but improving.

Send in your questions over the weekend. While not glued to the computer, I’ll keep an eye out for Digital Measures support requests.
