My Wired World

Yesterday my library joined the 21t century. No longer will we bear the scorn of our colleagues in the wired world. The hardware to complete our conversion to an automated system has been installed and it's all systems go. Well almost. We cannot sign books out to students as central office has not loaded their accounts into the system. We can sign materials out to staff who were here last year but not to new staff. As with many things technology related it seems to be two steps forward and one step back. We now have an online catalogue which works, most of the time.
Fortunately most of our books still have cards and pockets so we are able to use old technology until the new system works.
