New MARC records available, and more

In the Box widget to the left, you'll find new MARC records available: grmlc-20090328a, grmlc-20090331a, grmlc-20090408a, and grmlc-20090429a. The GMBA and DCF Master List titles for 2009-2010 are on their way as well, and we will have MARC records up for them as soon as possible. To download, just click on the icon for the file you would like and you should have a dialog box pop up asking where you would like to save the file.

In other news, we hit 15,000 checkouts on May 3, when a patron from the Rutland Free Library checked out a title. Onward to 20,000 titles!

Finally, don't forget that trainings start tomorrow -- email Stephanie at schase[at]stowelibrary.org if you need the login information again:
