MTS Update for May

Well it has been one crazy-busy semester, but we are finally bringing it to a close. However, rather than head for the exits, MTS will be right here trying to make sure everyone gets what they need (tech-wise, anyway) through interim and the summer sessions. In order to do that, though…we are working on some big upgrades around here.

Specifically, MTS will be rolling out a new digital scan check-out/in system that will finally replace all those ancient paper contracts. Rather than have to manually complete one of those for every transaction, we will be able to scan each asset as it leaves the office and attribute those items to a patron account each user of our service will set-up only once. Once that is done, all we will need is your faculty, staff or student ID to check out the items…cool, huh?

Wait…did I say student? Yes, I did. This summer, MTS will also be getting ready to start lending many of our items directly to students without a faculty sponsor–including our new iPads and Android devices! You didn’t know we had those, did ya? Well, there are fresh in and being prepped for check-out to you all.

While this is all very exciting stuff, we need to ask for your patience while we make it all a reality. These are significant changes and they need to happen just as the bulk of our student help is either graduating (Congrats, Cesar and Koa!) or leaving for the summer. That said, we are still here, doing what we do. So, if you need something and we have it, fill out The Form and we will make sure you get it. Thanks everybody!
