Client station acting as server: Not recommended. TLC testing showed that as soon as the user on the dual-use station began routine Windows functions (e.g., using office suite software, chat, email, media players, etc.), the time it took to search and save a typical MARC record increased considerably for all catalogers. If this station is used exclusively for cataloging, 1+ GB of RAM and a 3+ GHz CPU (or higher) is required.

Local Database size requirements vary considerably during use. A file that consumes 100 MB when the server is shut down may consume considerably more, up to an estimated 300MB, during active use. The file will shrink again to its normal size during the "vacuuming" process, which removes temporary data. This variance is built into the above specifications.
