Group Rep. Reports:
1. Jesse Bryson reports that ILL's LA I position, left vacant by Jana Borchardt's departure, was successfully upgraded to a LA II and is currently being recruited. In addition, two more LA I positions have been authorized for recruitment in Serials.
An informal survey undertaken by Jesse has revealed that Human Resources workshops are much appreciated by Serials staff members. However, future participants would prefer ½ day workshops to full day workshops.
