User Services Strategic - 9/12/07

Present: Andrew, Matt, Colin, Jim, Ryan, Bob E, Bob P, Larry, Todd, Chris, Diane

Topic: Office 2007

Stated Target Dates:

LIS is currently planning to gradually phase out Office 2000
and roll out Office 2007. Starting in November 2007, new machines for staff
will have Office 2007 installed instead of Office 2000. Faculty receiving new
machines in the summer of 2008 will have Office 2007 on their new machines. The
computer labs will have Office 2007 installed prior to the start of Fall
Semester 2008.

Since Office 2008 for the Mac is still in development, it is not yet known when
it will become available to Luther; although a January 2008 release is
anticipated. We are expecting that Office 2008 for the Mac will follow the same
schedule as Office 2007 for faculty and the computer labs. Office 2008 will
become part of the staff roll by summer of 2008.

How do we get from here to there?

The details on the conversation and the decisions made are included in the attached file.
