Secretariat tasks 
As was determined at the Geoscience staff workshop in June this year, the secretariat staff members have now defined which tasks they can offer to perform, based on present skills and manpower.
So far the list is in Danish only - to be found on the staff website http://geo.medarbejdere.au.dk > Administration.

Rooms with new functions

Room 1672-123
Previously the librarian's office - now changed to Partners’ Office
Every Monday Tine will still be available in this office, and we expect our administrative partners, in turn, to spend some hours here once a week.
For a start, Tina Veirup from AU Studies is in the office every Tuesday. 9-11.

Room 1672-129
The former library - is now converted into a multiple functions workspace for employees, including e.g. mail distribution and printing.  It is not quite finished, but it works.
As mentioned the room is for staff only and should be locked after normal working hours at 16:00.

SkyTEM in action

Esben Auken sent this message:
If you are interested in seeing SkyTEM in action, you will have the possibility on 7-8 December near Ringkøbing. Normally, SkyTEM does not allow visitors on the site, so this is a special invitation / opportunity.

Adobe programs

AU’s old and very favorable license agreement on Adobe CS5 and Adobe Acrobat Pro is no longer valid, and all previous agreements on free distribution of this software are cancelled. This means that ST support can no longer hand out and install Adobe CS and Acrobat Pro for free.
In future, you can purchase Adobe CS Suite and Adobe Acrobat Pro via our webshop: http://au.dk/itwebshop.
Together with the other Danish universities we negotiate with Adobe about a new license, however, so far we have no further information about it.


Longer delivery  times for Fujitsu machines
A combination of supply problems and technical problems with our system when installing Fujitsu machines has unfortunately caused this situation.
AU IT staff and the hardware supplier work hard to solve the problems and expect the situation will soon improve.

Nuisance from Biomedicin construction work

We are informed that until end of February 2015, some nuisance like vibrations and noise is to be expected in the area around the construction site at the corner of Høegh-Guldbergs Gade and Vennelyst Boulevard. More information here.
