Go Live Day (minus one)

Tomorrow we go live with Koha. On Saturday evening, after we closed at 6:00 pm, Cathi migrated the last of our circulation transactions from Symphony and placed them in a file(s) so that ByWater Solutions could install them into our new catalog on late Saturday and all day on Sunday. We appreciate that our consultants are willing to work on the weekend, allowing us to stay open to the public.

The staff has been practicing the new system, publicity is out, and we feel ready for the new system. Not everything is perfect yet. The OPAC needs some tweaking, the authorities are not perfect, the receipt printers are spewing too much paper, and the Syndetics book covers are not consistent however none of these problems will hold us back from our new system.

Wish us luck!
