1. There has been an increase in the number of users not signing into the General Chemistry Hoods after hours. Users are required to sign in each and every time they use the hood, with a buddy after 6 pm on weekdays and all day on weekends and holidays. This helps us keep track of usage and aids us in piecing together usage history in the event of a safety incident and is CNF policy. Continued violations will result in lab suspensions.
  2. There also has been a significant amount of user belongings (wafer boxes, notebooks, masks) left out on tables and counters in the cleanroom, particularly in the stepper room. We will begin removing items and placing them in storage starting in April. They will be held for several months then disposed of if not claimed. Please make sure you masks and sample are properly stored and not left out on benches and tables.
  3. On Wednesday, March 21, 2018, CNF will debut its new CNFUsers website replacing the current ten-plus years old site. The new site is hosted in a modern Drupal environment on Pantheon and uses modern web design paradigms. Mobile devices can use the responsive design elements to render the site on most any screen size including smart phones. New high quality tool pictures, the @CNFUsers twitter feed, the Cornell Events Calendar featuring CNF events, and a standardized maintainable layout are all parts of the new site.

If you have any questions or concerns on these Reminders, please contact Phil Infante.
