I am currently starting the Library Ministry for our church. I definitely plan to do automation and have researched a couple of companies. I am leaning toward Concourse but was a little overwhelmed when looking at the options. What "extras" on top of the basic "Level 3" software do I need? BarcodeMaster, eZcat, etc. - what would be considered good additions for getting us started?
Angela, have you looked at PC Card catalog. You might want to consider looking at that one. Just click on the icon on the side of our page here and it will show you. I use this program and am very pleased at the user friendly feel of the product. Always a good idea to check around before purchase.
We use Concourse at FBC Grapevine Texas and really like it. We have the module available where the card catalog is available on our church website, which our members really like. We also have the module where we print our own barcodes, and the one for printing our own donor bookplates. I would be happy to go over what we use and find helpful.
