User-Space Clean up Underway: Message from the User Liaison Office
Jan. 16, 2013
As you are aware Jefferson Lab has a very diverse collection of users who share office, storage and technical space at our facility. Over the past several years, as organizations have come and gone, we have accrued a significant amount of unclaimed property. This property (consisting of old computing equipment, file cabinets, books and documents, among other things) is distributed throughout the Lab and has grown in size to the point that it is impacting the availability of user space.
As a result, we're asking for your help to reduce the load again before the start of 12GeV.
During the next 90 days, we'll be working our way through user offices, cubicles and storage areas identifying abandoned property. Materials that appear to be abandoned will be marked with a red tag. Following the Users Group Meeting this summer, any tagged material that has not been claimed will be scheduled for disposal.
Users who have materials at the Lab and will not be here to claim them before the Users Group Meeting, should contact Lorelei Chopard of the User Liaison Office. She can be reached at 757-269-6388 or by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have office items you would like to temporarily store please contact Lorelei.
Upon notification, the property will be considered claimed and marked accordingly.We appreciate your patience in this process, and we hope that when we're finished we'll all share a more accessible work environment.
From the Users Group Board of Directors chair, Sebastian Kuhn:
Nota Bene: We urge all Jefferson Lab users and students and other interested parties to sign up to the Users' mailing list "CUGA" if you haven't done so already. You could miss out on important information otherwise! Contact Lorelei to have your email address added to the list; we promise not to inundate you with spam.
