I want an ILS where I can set the max # of items out. If I place holds, they are all suspended if I am at my max # out. Then, when I return material to the library, the holds automatically become active for the next book. I could choose to have more than my 'max # items out' knowing that it would keep my holds suspended.
Deadline extended to this weekend. Hey, you coming to ALA Annual? or need a way to convince work to send you? I, wearing my ALA LearnRT Program Chair Hat, invite you to submit a proposal to one or two or three of our sessions at ALA Annual In Chicago. Have at it! Workshop titles and links below. PLEEEEEZE..
So after a thorough review of every RSS Reader out there I think I've settled on http://newsblur.com/ though I'm also considering http://theoldreader.com/ but I found it a bit too basic. Has anyone else settled on anything?
Tablets in libraries:
* If you have them, what are your people doing with them?
* How integrated are they with your institutional networked resources (networked printer queues, shared drives, etc.)?
* What tasks or abilities are "must haves" for your tablets?
* What would you want to be able to do with a tablet in your library?
LSWers: Am I mistaken in my impression that this group does a pretty good job of being civil while openly debating issues, without requiring a moderator? And that when one of us goes a little overboard (raises hand!), we're pretty good at restoring order without slandering one another?
I think I'm going crazy. We moved to a new ILS. I've got five of our six selfchecks working, the sixth won't communicate to the new ILS server. Our selfcheck support says there's a problem with the port. All six machines are using the same port; why would five of them work and one not?
We started charging fines for children's material at the beginning of the year and every time someone comes in to complain that we "never told them" I waver between sympathy and frustration. It won't help this issue, but I was wondering what you have done to communicate to your public?
