Resources

Changes in Version 12:

Problem with books trapped for Holds when they are returned has been fixed.  You will still get a notice on the screen when the book is checked in, but the request will appear on the Processing Needed page awaiting your response as to whether you are sending the item, or Declining the request.  The Status no longer goes to Ready when the item is checked in.

Universal Search adds ribbons for each format, allows for sorting search results and narrowing the scope of your search. Universal Search has been set up for each site, with teachers who are logged in being able to search the curriculum tags.
