Jason Newborn and Margaret Tapper will join the CDL Request Team working 25% time for one year. Jason is on loan from UC Davis where he is a member of the ILL management team; he has extensive experience with ILL/ILB operations and with automation of their operational functions.  Margaret is on loan from UC Irvine where she is a Programmer/Analyst in the Library Systems Department; she brings with her knowledge of ILL automation and very strong analytical and technical skills.

They will be working on the CBS Implementation (see CDLINFO Vol.4, No.20   <http://www.cdlib.org/news/cdlinfo/cdlinfo110801.html#3> for more information).  Their responsibilities will include providing ILL expertise as well as a campus perspective to the design, plan, and implementation of aspects of the Request service.  They will be working with campus ILL units throughout the UC system to assist staff in configuring systems specifically for local operations and in adjusting workflows to take advantage of system functions.

We want to thank both UC Davis and UC Irvine for this contribution to the co-library efforts.  The addition of Jason and Margaret to the Request Team will benefit us all.
