A one-day training session is now available for your staff at
your location. The cost is based on a one-day Session Fee (US$800)
plus travel expenses for our trainer. Please contact
us for scheduling and pricing. Because the training is necessarily
interactive, we suggest classes be limited to 35.
The curriculum first takes your staff through the main features
of PC Card Catalog or CONCEPT I, focussing on the
common day-to-day activities included in BASIC and CIRCULATION.
The second session draws attention to the more subtle features
with an emphasis on how to use them in your library. A final session
deals with issues such as networking and program structure. We
also study the peripheral programs like Net Card Catalog
or Public Access (OPAC) or CONCEPT I ADMIN as
We do not provide cataloging or library administrative training
other than where these items overlap the use of PC Card Catalog
and CONCEPT I.
Designed for larger, networked installations, we provide on-site
technical staff to work with your network administrator. The purpose
of "commissioning" is to complete and confirm the final

web/intranet-based Net Card Catalog installation.
The cost is based on a one-day Commissioning Fee (US$800) plus
the travel expenses for our technician. Please contact
us for scheduling and pricing.
