On Wednesday, July 31 we applied an upgrade to an extension for klasusers.com causing problems on the admin side of the site but undetectable from the user side. To resolve the issue, we had to restore a July 30 backup version from prior to the extension being upgraded. Unfortunately, doing so caused us to lose some discussion forums posts and replies. We saved each and are reposting them to the best of our ability reflecting the author and time / date of posting. Thank you for your understanding. We are sorry for any inconvenience or confusion.
As thunder sounds over the Keystone offices and we enter peak hurricane season, it seems like a good time to revisit our Disaster Preparedness and Recovery procedures.
We’ve posted about this before, and the 2018 Post is still applicable, so feel free to have a look back at that one. But technology is ever-evolving, and we’ve been keeping up. Here’s an overview of some changes:
We're dedicated to supporting each type of organization that uses KLAS. Here are a few examples of our ongoing efforts to connect with and serve our IRC / IMC users:
Keystone staff attends the American Printing House for the Blind Annual Meeting where we host the IRC KLAS Users' Meeting.
The KLAS Users' Conference Program committee makes it a priority to seek out / provide KLAS content that appeals our talking book library, resource center, and association users as well as content specific to each.
In late October, Keystone is hosting an IRC Symposium at our office in Raleigh.
I wanted to take a few minutes today to highlight two upcoming IRC / IMC KLAS user events.
The move to a Duplication on Demand service model opens up the full collection of download-only titles to your patrons... but patrons who receive books by Subject will only get them if the titles have local subject cataloguing.
If you haven’t been keeping up cataloguing those download-only titles, if you are considering adding a brand-new subject heading, or if you’re just interested in some sprucing up... We have a new tool to help!
Added in KLAS Version 7.7 build 11, the Change Headings tool allows you to batch apply a subject heading to (or remove it from) a query set of titles.
