Making it happen

My new "library school" (the school where I will be teaching library) uses Sycamore Education as their management system. As a part of that they offer a library management system. Seeing as how our current system was needing to be changed I decided new system. It was needed of course...the old system was from a company now longer in business and the backup was done in house by a tech guy whenever we told him it needed to be done. It also was designed to hold about 10,000 books, which we are holding more. All that said, Sycamore is already being paid I decided to give it a shot. And by "give it a shot" I really mean that we are using it and there is no going back. We also upgraded my computer to a newer one (which had the old program on it). Good-bye old computer and old system! Hold on folks this is going to be a bumpy library ride this year! I have uploaded the books. 1st hurdle....746 books not found So I go back through our list
