|2005 - 022||MORE BESTSELLER LISTS|
|Thanks again to the technical services staff at Champaign Public Library who have added additional bestseller lists to LINCPac and Horizon. Best Books for Young Adults 2005 is a YALSA award list. The Grammy Awards Winners 2005 and the (DVD) Academy Award Best Picture Lists have also been added.|
|2005 - 023||DEMONSTRATION OF DOWNLOADABLE AUDIOBOOKS|
|Are you interested in offering downloadable audiobooks to your patrons? A presentation by a company representative from Overdrive (www.overdrive.com), a company that sells this type of book format, will be held on March 9, 9:00 am, at LTLS. If you want to attend this presentation, please email Pat Boze, email@example.com.|
|2005 - 024||LINCPAC BROWSER COMPATIBILITY|
|We have received some comments where patrons say their
web browsers cannot access LINCPac or certain functions within LINCPac.
Because of variations in how different browsers interpret HTML, not
all will behave the same. Dynix has developed the LINCPac product to
work with the most commonly-used browsers. The browsers that are known
to work with our current version of LINCPac are:|
• Windows and UNIX – Internet Explorer 6.02 and Netscape 7.1
• Linux – Netscape 7.1
• MAC OS 10.3.1 or higher – Netscape 7.1 and Safari 1.2.1
Other browers may work, but these are the ones that have been tested by Dynix.
|2005 - 025||SERIALS AT YOUR LIBRARY|
|Are you interested in using the Horizon serials module to help you easily add holdings for newly-received magazines? If your library does not use this module, we encourage you to use it. Setting up the module and training are simple and straightforward. Using the module allows you to create item records at checkin, track missed volumes, and generate claims to vendors. It can automate your current processes and cut down on paperwork. If you are interested, contact Pat Boze or Donna Schaal to discuss setting this module up in Horizon.|
|2005 - 026||LINCPAC TEST CHANGES|
We continue to seek comments on the proposed changes to
LINCPac. The test version can be viewed at:
If you have any comments about these proposed changes, please email Karen Hackman.
|2005 - 027||PHONING FOR HOLDS|
|If you currently have Horizon configured at your agency to phone patrons when a hold arrives, we recommend that you consider changing this agency-wide setting to ‘mail’ instead. This agency-wide setting generates phone notices only for items that are received and checked in at your library. If your patron asks for pickup at another library, they will never receive a hold notice. When the agency-wide setting for hold notices is set to mail, hold notices then print out as part of your daily notices, both for items the patron receives at your library and items the patron receives at another library. Please contact Pat Boze to discuss this change.|

"Help! I tried to log into WebMail and it won't let me. What do I do?"
If you think you have the correct answer, email Amanda McKay.

Congratulations to Holly Thompson of the Rantoul Public Library who correctly identified http://188.8.131.52:81/1114/m0.html as the correct location for finding a calander of training events for the LTLS system. http://184.108.40.206:81/3396/m0.html was also a correct answer.
