Dear Colleagues…

Dear Colleagues:  While it seems almost surreal to be writing this – I am acknowledging over 50 years in the information industry, and within weeks of my 70th birthday – I often ask how this happened???

Over these decades I have witnessed and hopefully influenced many of the changes that we are all part of today.  Did I ever think I would find myself ‘tweeting’ or being a social media maven or learning more about the inner workings of a COVID world – certainly not.  I hope over these challenging times I have made your careers a little easier and provided help to you with your day-to-day environments.

It is time for me to re-focus my attention on my family – four and two footed critters alike and remember to take a deep breath.  You can always reach out to me should you want to brainstorm or just check in from time to time.  I will deeply treasure the many meaningful relationships these years have brought.  Unlimited Priorities has been a pleasure to own, and I will have fond memories of the many interesting/sometimes crazy projects we took on.

I will be around until mid-October should you need anything – remember – I am a Facebook addict so you can keep up with me and I look forward to reading about your adventures.  My email and phone number will remain the same so please – reach out at any time.  Many, many thanks for the memories – be well – and may your futures be kind to you – and please – remember to try and save a life today! Cheers, Iris (and John and the Pups!)

Thank you,

What Info Pros Are Grateful For: Iris Hanney

via What Info Pros Are Grateful For by Brandi Scardilli

Brandi Scardilli: Because 2020 has been all kinds of awful, I want to celebrate whatever silver linings we can find. Here are some thoughts from 15 info pros, who share what they’re grateful for in their professional lives, new technologies they’ve adopted, and anything else that comes to mind. I hope their positivity can lift you up and help you reflect on the good things you’ve experienced this year.

Iris L. Hanney, president of Unlimited Priorities, LLC, spoke with Brandi Scardilli about what she was grateful for in this crazy year.

What in your professional life are you most grateful for this year?
Unlimited Priorities is a small company that serves small to midsize companies in the information industry and supports activities of the academic research libraries. I am very grateful that we have managed to stay afloat, maintain most of our team, work with companies worldwide, understand worldwide challenges because of COVID, and remain viable for doing business, forming partnerships, and surviving this insanity. I am especially grateful to all of our customers for their ongoing trust, and we are committed to never disappointing a client ever—even through this wild ride.

What new tech have you learned and/or enjoyed this year as part of your job?
I bit the bullet after 5 years and bought a new laptop. While I was petrified of learning a new operating system—old dogs, new tricks—I am now thrilled that I did it. The efficiency of the new software and the speed of the new computer are amazing. Yes, old dogs can learn new tricks!

Are there any other positive things about your work life this year that you’d like to share?
Many of this year’s challenges, we are hoping, will support growth going into next year. There are new products being built, new ways to market being created, a new respect for co-workers who are hanging on. Resilience is a fabulous trait—I have witnessed it in many and hopefully in myself.

Unlimited Priorities to Manage and Implement Technology Upgrades

Cape Coral, FL (February 5, 2019) Unlimited Priorities LLC is pleased to announce the development, management, and implementation of a variety of technology initiatives in 2019 for its clients. Access will be available via both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses for our client. The addition of IPv6 promises a stronger, faster user experience!

Unlimited Priorities president, Iris L. Hanney, believes that  “the implementation of IPv6 and additional developments in 2019 continues to highlight our ongoing commitment to serve the library and information community with the most up to date technology.”

In consultation with our partner’s library customers, Unlimited Priorities LLC was made aware of the concern that the IPv4 addressing scheme was running out of potential addresses and schools were wanting to move toward IPv6 address usage.  Unlimited Priorities supervised the technology developments necessary to accommodate customers’ needs.

The IPv6 format was created to enable new IP addresses required to connect not only an ever-greater number of computing devices but also the rapidly expanding numbers of items with embedded connectivity.

To insure the viability of the IPv6 gateway Unlimited Priorities conducted access testing with two academic libraries. Our thanks go out to Ruth Light, Electronic Resources Access Manager, Indiana University Libraries, and Michaelyn Haslam, Electronic Resource Librarian, UNLV University Libraries for working with us and providing invaluable feedback. The successful testing was a very key component to going forward.
