It’s an ex­cit­ing time at the RW (Bob) Farr Li­brary. The new li­brary sys­tem, Libero, will be in­stalled by Mon­day 10 Septem­ber. Ini­tially, li­brary users won’t see a huge dif­fer­ence as most of the changes will ben­e­fit staff in pro­vid­ing greater cus­tomer ser­vice. Bor­row­ers will, Re­lax in the Li­brary how­ever, see great im­prove­ments once the on­line pres­ence is es­tab­lished by be­ing able to search for ti­tles and au­thors, see cover im­ages, re­new loans, re­serve items, sub­mit in­ter li­brary loan re­quests and search fo­cus lists from new items to cur­rent favourites.
