Minneapolis, MN – May 26, 2005 – Sagebrush Corporation, a leading provider of education technologies and information resources for K-12 districts and schools, today announced the release of Sagebrush Accent Express version 1.3, the latest release to the company's award-winning centralized library automation system.
“Accent Express 1.3 offers our Accent users greater flexibility and increased functionality,” said Jim Zicarelli, Sagebrush CEO. “We listened to our customers and incorporated several new features based on their input,” Zicarelli continued. “This release continues our commitment to constantly enhance Accent to ensure our customers get the best possible system to help them manage and provide access to information sources throughout their district.”
Accent Express 1.3 introduces new features, including:
- Barcode and spine label printing – Using a pre-existing list of copy IDs, Accent can now generate a barcode or spine label for each copy in the list. Similarly, when printing patron barcode labels, users can then create a list of patron IDs and have Accent generate labels for each patron in the list.
- Patron History Report – Accent Express now includes a Patron History report that provides information about patron checkout history. This report can be generated for one patron or for multiple patrons at a time. For each patron listed, the report includes the copies checked out as well as checkout and checkin dates.
- Default lookup indexes – Users can now choose the default copy lookup index as well as the default patron lookup index. Once the default value is set, Accent automatically selects it in the Identify By list whenever the Identify Patron or Identify Copy windows are accessed.
