The one-day* Inventory
feature is an efficient means to
determine the status of every item in
the collection. While not required, bar
codes and a scanner make this
process even more efficient. Once every
item is "inventoried, " the
Inventory List is printed and
reconciled with the circulation cards.
The resulting list is a precise picture
of the collection showing misshelved
and missing items. (The CIRCULATION
module Inventory feature automatically
reconciles items checked out.)
* It's so efficient we have completed a 10,000 item library Inventory in just one day!
The Shelf list

Series as shelved in sequence order
instead of the older alphabetic
standard. Unlike other library systems,
PC Card Catalog adheres to precise
"AACR2" alphabetizing for its
Listings and its Catalogs.

optional program) allows the "Item
