CHANGES TO PLANNED UPGRADE ON FEBRUARY 7
We had been scheduled for a February 7 upgrade to Horizon 7.4 and LINCPAC 4.1 for several weeks. However, SirsiDynix has informed us that this new PAC (4.1) is still unstable and advised us to not upgrade to either product at this time. We were advised to proceed with a minor upgrade to the current LINCPAC, to version 3.06A, which will fix some bugs but not change the interface or configuration. This is the 'minor' upgrade that will happen instead on February 7.
What does this mean to you?
We will post messages to the LTLS Online System Status blog (http://www.lincolntrail.info/systemstatus.html) to keep you informed of the progress of the upgrade to LINCPAC 3.06A on February 7.
|2006 - 012||NEW MY MEDIA MALL RECORDS|
We’ve added another 145 My Media Mall bibliographic records to LINC. This brings the total number of Media Mall titles to 1200 (downloadable audiobooks, e-books, and mobipocket books). Also, the Lincoln Trail Libraries patrons, as a group, have the highest monthly circulation of all libraries participating in My Media Mall. Thanks for your efforts to promote this product and encourage use by your patrons.

AUTHORITY LOAD COMPLETED
We recently completed an
authority load process called an authority refresh. This is a
process that is done every two years. To accomplish this, the
entire bibliographic file is sent to LTI, the authority record vendor. They
processed this file and sent back new/changed authorities as well as
changed bibliographic records with these new authorities. After
these records were processed by LTI, the following records were loaded
back into LINC:
