While CaminoSoft technicians installed the software, HSLIC's IT staff spent about one week establishing the three-tier structure.
HSLIC dropped the third tier of storage, however, because Managed Server HSM originally had limited support for optical and tape devices, and the supported devices did not provide the capacity that Metzner wanted for a third tier.
By continuing to keep primary storage cleaned up, HSLIC has managed its growing storage needs without adding expensive, high-performance drives.
Metzner estimates that HSLIC spends about one-eighth as much for storage as similar institutions that have implemented a SAN with a capacity comparable to his center's file storage servers.
Two HSLIC faculty members scheduled days to take the mobile parts of the exhibit to colleges serving American Indian populations around the state.
An estimated 25 students attended a panel discussion about the exhibit, which included an HSLIC faculty member, representatives from NLM, and San Juan College nursing and dental hygiene faculty members.
We also publicized the opportunity in the Native Health Initiative weekly newsletter , and the HSLIC's native and distance services librarian traveled to native communities to promote the project.
To begin the evaluation process, the authors gathered cost and usage data for all of HSLIC's individually subscribed e-journal titles (n = 117) and titles in packages that allowed individual title cancellations (n = 416) from the calendar year 2013, as well as usage from January 2014 until mid-August 2014.
Journal subscriptions HSLIC is considering for cancellation are listed below.
