We've identified a new platform to host our klasusers listserv and are in the process of getting it setup and operational. We expect it to be back up and running early next week! Since we haven't completed the process as of this morning, however, I am again posting this week's KLAS Users' Weekly Wrap-up here.
KeyNotes Blog Post
In this week’s post Sam Lundberg, Reader Advisor, New Mexico State Library, Library for the Blind & Print Disabled describes service changes they're made, including a great tip about implementing a temporary Google Voice number to avoid providing the personal numbers of library staff to patrons.
New MARC Records Corrections
The latest MARC record corrections have been posted. Note however that the New file (and Aprils mid-month New file) are not yet available from NLS.
Discussion Forum Post
Did you know you can import a list of KLAS IDs using Quick Request or Add HasHad? In this week's forum post, Katy writes, "This is a neat feature of 7.7 that could easily be overlooked... but I think once you get to know it, you'll love it! Do you have a patron who likes to email in their request list? Do you put seasonal titles or staff picks in your newsletter, and get patrons asking you to send them the whole list? You can put that whole list on the patron's request list or service queue without needing to retype all of those DB numbers." Learn more in this week's forum post!
