I am looking forward to presenting at the Central Alabama Library Conference. I love sharing my knowledge about Concourse and Atriuum with current users as well as potential users. Marty has a great conference planned. I hope many of you will be able to attend.

Our church currently uses Concourse PC based. We want to add Web OPAC so our patrons can search the catalog online. Also so we can start adding ebooks I have quotes for adding Web OPAC to Concourse and for changing to Atriuum. Our library budget is pretty low and moving to Atriuum seems outside our budget. Can someone share how they use Concourse Web OPAC and manage ebooks? Thanks

I will be presenting sessions on Concourse and Atriuum. It is a great opportunity to meet with other Concourse and Atriuum users and to get a half day of training for a minimal amount of money.

We would like to invite you to join us at our two-day fall library training event in Nashville, September 13-14, 2019. There will be courses on Concourse.

It is our hope that many will be able to join us for great library training and experience Nashville at the same time.

Consider bringing your team and coming early to tour the new LifeWay building or visit the renowned Nashville Public Library.

The location is Forest Hills Baptist Church. They will be opening their new Disciple Making Hub "The Bridge" in August. We hope you will be able to join us. The cost is only 30 dollars (which includes Friday night dinner, Saturday continental breakfast and lunch.)

Please share with any school, public and church library workers in your area and beyond. We welcome all librarians! You will receive many new ideas and have fun at the same time.

It will be Friday 2 - 8 pm and Saturday 8 am - 3 pm. More specific details will be available later in July.

Mark your calendars and make plans to join us. You will be so glad you did.

Thanks for your faithfulness to the library ministry.

Re: Concourse Filter Tutorial

Open up Concourse and click on the Help item. The drop down lists several guides. I think the Users Guide is the best one for use of filters.  Start at Chapter 2 Basic Functionality and read on down through the discussion of using filters.  For me, the best way to learn is to try different things and see how it works.  So read, try. If you have questions post your problem. Help is right here.

I'd like to see a tutorial on using filters when you're trying to print a report or just find information.

Comment by Allison Maynard on February 8, 2018 at 9:22pm

I would like to hear from Concourse users about what topics they would like to have explained in video tutorials. I am hoping to record tutorials for out customers. Let me know what you think.
