  • i HAVE CONCOURSE INSTALLED. IF I OPEN CONCOURSE, THAN OPAC IS NOT AVAILABE. OPEN OPAC, AND CONCOURSE IS NOT AVAILABLE. iS THERE A WAY TO INSTALL CONCOURSE SO THE CATALOG IS AVAILABLE FOR READ/WRITE, AND AVAILABLE TO OPAC AS READ?

  • 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.

Printing Barcodes

I am new to Concourse.  I have downloaded the latest version of Concourse and eZcat to our new computer.  I am considering purchasing a BC Master licence and barcodes to print our own.  What are the pros and cons?  We are scrapping the old database as it is hopelessly out of date and we will start barcoding the items that remain on the shelf after a heavy weeding process.

Problem using Concourse reports

I'm having trouble using the reports feature of Concourse, version 8.5.013.  Items added recently (after about August) do not appear in the generated report.We recently updated to the current version, just before our maintenance contract expired. We let it expire because of a deep cut in our budget, and the fact that we have never had trouble before. I tried reindexing the catalog, but no joy.Has anyone had this problem? I suspect the update might have some thing to do with my problem.

Set up Concourse view for visually impaired

One of our library team members is visually impaired and really struggling to use Concourse on our slightly smaller monitor. Does anyone know if we can/how to change the view settings in Concourse to accommodate her needs? I was hoping we could have a special setting that would automatically change when she logs in. If that's not available, we'll still want to change the settings each time she is working at the circulation desk. Thanks.
