Automation Services - Looking Forward

As you know,we are considering our automation system options (OPALS and Follett) moving forward. Amy Carpenter, SLS Council President, sent an email with a link to a survey that we are asking all of you to take. This will better enable us 1) to see the "lens" through which we need to look at each system, and 2) to make sure that everyone who has an interest in seeing the demo and completing a more in-depth survey can participate. Thanks for your help!
