Unicorn and PC screen resolutions

Some of you who have been exploring the EPS/Rooms demo site have noticed that you are unable to view the entire screen without scrolling from left to right. This is due to the EPS interface being designed for computer screens with a resolution of 1024 x 768, whereas staff and public PCs at MPLIC are configured with a resolution of 800 x 600. This is an issue for the Unicorn Workflows program as well, as attendees at the April onsite training discovered. In the computer training room, we were able to adjust screen resolutions on-the-fly, but this is not an option for most MPLIC PCs.

For this reason, in the future Automated Services staff will be reconfiguring all MPLIC PCs to the 1024 x 768 setting. This work will occur gradually over time as Workflows is installed on the PCs used by staff who have attended SirsiDynix training and who will be participating in reviewing a test data load. This activity is currently on the timeline for August, but may be moved forward.
