PALNI communicates in many different ways, from email to forums, and online virtual meetings. The boxes below outline key communication channels you'll want to configure to begin interfacing with the consortium staff and colleagues. In addition PALNI hosts a communication guide described here, which you will also want to review as part of completing the onboarding checklist.
The PALNI Communication Guide offers complete details on contacting PALNI staff, communicating with colleagues, OCLC support, listservs, and virtual meetings. The manual also contains information on PALNI branding guidelines for creating materials while working within a PALNI group, team, expert, or coordinator role. Access the Communication Manual.
The PALNI Community (intranet) serves as a central location for virtual PALNI discussion. All PALNI groups work together in this system to make it easier for those people who serve in multiple roles on their campus.
What you will find in the Hub:
What you will NOT find in the Hub:
Because you are on a non-google campus, you will need to take one extra step before signing up for the new PALNI Community (AKA: New Hub). It will only take 2-3 minutes of your time and you will never have to do it again (or even remember you did it!)
As of Fall 2017, PALNI uses Google Team Drives as the document repository. To gain access to the PALNI Team Drives, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and include your gmail account email.
Joining a Zoom Meeting:
Advisory groups usually meet 1-2 times a year in-person depending on the group.
Signing up: Meetings will typically have a call-out posted on the Hub in the Events area. It is important to always fill out the survey in the call out for lunch orders and headcounts.
PALNI Calendar: This calendar will show all PALNI events and meetings.
Mileage Reimbursement: Reimbursement Procedure
