Kudos

Toby Graham, director of the Digital Library of Georgia, has been selected to attend the Frye Leadership Institute at Emory University and plans to use the experience to help the University System of Georgia create a digital repository for electronic scholarship.

The institute's purpose is to develop creative leaders to guide and transform academic information services for higher education in the 21st century by providing an understanding of the issues, including academic, technology, economic, public policy, student, and constituent-relations dynamics.

Among the criteria for the competitive selection, applicants are asked to describe a year-long project that they will undertake after the two-week residential portion of the Frye Institute. Graham proposed helping UGA and the 35-member University System make substantial progress toward the goal of a systemwide Institutional Repository (IR) program.

UGA Calendar Changes

All meetings scheduled using the UGA calendar service before January 12 for the dates March 11 through April 1 should be rescheduled.

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 changed the time-change dates for Daylight Saving Time in the U.S. Beginning in 2007, DST will begin on the second Sunday in March and end the first Sunday in November.  In the past, DST started on the first Sunday in April. EITS modified the UGA calendar service (Oracle calendar) on January 12. Meetings scheduled after January 12 are not affected by the DST change. Meetings scheduled before January 12 will be off by one hour.
