JCCC released a statement today about shifting its copy center to another site on campus.
This follows the April 11 communiqué about JCCC’s budget cuts for FY2011-2012 that hinted at a changes ahead for the copy center.
On April 14, posts appeared on the JCCC electronic mail servers, JCCClist (general discussion list) and JCCFA (Faculty Association list), opposing the copy center’s move from the Billington Library (LIB) to the Campus Services Building (CSB).
“This could put [staff/faculty] in the position of having to use the less efficient, more expensive department or area copiers – surely an unintended consequence,” one instructor wrote.
Another expressed concern for adjunct instructors who cannot make it to campus before the CSB closes at 5pm.
“Clearly yet another example of decisions being made without asking what is needed from the people who utilize the service,” another instructor wrote. ” Shades of yet more to come…”
JCCC has scheduled information sessions for employees about the budget cuts.
- Thursday, April 28, 2 to 3 p.m.
- Tuesday, May 3, 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, May 4, 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.
- Thursday, May 5, 8:30 to 9:30 a.m.

Subject: [infolist] Changes in Document Services, Warehouse and Postal Services
In an effort to help the college achieve goals related to Prioritizing the Budget Strategically (PBS) for FY12, Document Services, the Warehouse and Postal Services are making adjustments in order to reduce overall operational costs and improve delivery efficiencies. Three positions have been eliminated, and operations are being consolidated and coordinated between these departments. As a result, this will require substantial changes to the services that are provided by these departments.
First, the frequency of the daily pick-ups and deliveries of mail will change from twice daily to once daily, effective May 2. The afternoon pick-ups and deliveries will be discontinued.
Second, the Copy Center in the Billington Library (LIB 226) will close at that location, and these operations will be consolidated with the main Copy Center in the CSB building, effective May 19.
All of the services, including dropping off and picking up of orders, that were previously available in LIB 226 will now be available at the Copy Center in the CSB building. As part of this transition and to enhance the ability of faculty and staff to submit and track orders, a web-submittal system (called e-Access) is being implemented. More information will be forwarded to the campus once this system is functional, which is anticipated to be approximately June 1, 2011.
Third, Document Services’ orders will be delivered by either Postal Services (small packages) or the Warehouse (larger orders). As a general rule, deliveries will be routed to faculty and staff members’ division offices unless other division offices or delivery locations are requested on orders. Please allow sufficient time for orders to be processed and delivered. Typically, orders for paper or class handouts that are received by Document Services will be delivered within two working days. Complex documents or orders for off-campus locations may require 3-5 working days for delivery. Orders requiring special delivery requirements or pick-ups may be arranged by contacting Document Services at ext. 3293.
Finally, surplus property will continue to be picked up by the Warehouse on Fridays. Please submit service requests for surplus property pickups to email@example.com as far in advance as possible.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
