Please join me in welcoming +Gail Murray to the WISCAT team! She'll be transitioning from the BadgerLink team to WISCAT next week and will work on supporting, configuring, and administering WISCAT software. She brings a wealth of knowledge on the software as she worked with SHAREit in her work with BadgerLink. We're all very excited to have her join the team as we continue to improve resource sharing in Wisconsin!

Today marks the start of National Library Week! This year, DPI produced a video featuring State Superintendent Tony Evers and the Lancaster and Beloit Public Libraries. In the video, Tony talks about the critical role libraries play in their communities, proposed cuts to the IMLS budget, and gives a special shout out to resource sharing and WISCAT. Please feel free to share his message as you celebrate National Library Week in your libraries!
