Abstract: Concourse 8.1 includes new and exciting options for customers, such as support for Microsoft Windows Vista. One of the new product features is the library can provide an easy-to-use self check-out station for your patrons by creating a SELFCIRC worker and realigning the worker’s Circulation Desk permissions. This new feature is great for patrons who need to quickly check out items when the library is busy, and it is also a good solution for school libraries where an entire class checks out at the same time each week.


Concourse 8.1 includes new and exciting options for customers, such as support for Microsoft Windows Vista. One of the new product features is the library can provide an easy- to-use self check-out station for your patrons by creating a SELFCIRC worker and realigning the worker’s Circulation Desk permissions. This new feature is great for patrons who need to quickly check out items when the library is busy, and it is also a good solution for school libraries where an entire class checks out at the same time each week. Settings are in place to restrict patrons from accessing sensitive records. Another new feature enables the librarians to customize circulation information at the Circulation Desk and print the circulation grid to your local printer. All of the new enhancements are documented in the User’s Guide and in the online Helps from the top menu bar in Concourse. Book Systems is dedicated to putting the customer first. As a result, some of the features in this new version are based on customer feedback we have received.
