We are set to “Go Live” on the 29th. In case there are any issues with the ILS we will reserve Monday the 29th as a “fix it” day. A few of the things we are working on right now is a template for the reciept printer, correcting the scanner set up to read the various forms of bar codes we have. Some of them have 8 digits, some 13 digits and a few have 14. The solution was to pad the shorter numbers with zeros and program the scanner to read only the first 13 digits. This was done as a global edit of the bib records in MySQL. We will know if it works on Friday the 26th when our bibs, users and circ records are loaded on the production server by LibLime. We are working on finishing touches on the OPAC gui (graphical user interface-what the user sees and interacts with). Increasing type size and text is done is basic html. Our new web page is coming along. We are polishing up links and hoping for the best.
So stay tuned those of you who have been lurking….we will be up and running Open Source on 10-1-08.
