As announced, the upgrade will proceed the weekend of February 3rd. Final reminders will go out tomorrow. Please remember that the Workflows client MUST be updated before using the system on Monday.
Earlier this month, based on a comment on our Facebook page, we added a technical support link to iBistro. We now regularly receive a number of questions from patrons via that email. It is interesting that most of the comments have to do with PINs and renewing library materials.
2012 annual statistics will be sent out by the middle of next week.
I met with the Board and staff of the Keyport Public Library in Monmouth County. They are very interested in joining LMxAC (in large part thanks to a discussion between their Board president and Kimberly Paone at Matawan Aberdeen). Keyport is not automated so it will be a big project to convert their collection and patron accounts. Christy and I will meet with staff again next week and the Board is expected to consider LMxAC membership at their next meeting.
SmartPay will be turned on February 1stfor Edison, Monroe and Piscataway. On February 19th we intend to make it available system-wide.
