Using the GreaseMonkey extension to Firefox (http://greasemonkey.mozdev.org), a single user station can be configured to add item availability notices to Amazon pages.

This plugin (.src and .png file) can be added to the Firefox "searchplugins" folder on a single user station to provide quick search access to the OPAC through the Firefox toolbar. The .src file should be updated to reference your library's web server address ("action" and "searchForm") and preferred pac config ("config"). Note: This search plugin requires Library.Solution 3.3 or 3.3.5. If you are using a previous version, change the "searchfield" value to 7.

Macro 

7/23/2005 

The Library Corporation 

Permits an on-order title to be added to the database so that it will display in the public access catalog. Creates a unique "barcode" (item ID) to support patron holds from the PAC by copying the 001 field contents. When the item(s) arrive(s), this barcode should be replaced by one or more real barcodes.

Label Configuration

Madison County Public Library 

Settings for 98 spine labels/sheet. 

Designed for use with laser spine labels @ 98/sheet (.75" high X 1" wide). Works with HP LaserJet 1100. Tip: The contributor suggests that you keep a cheat sheet taped to the front of the printer that lists the position # for the top and bottom of each column (98/sheet = 7 columns X 14 rows), to make it quicker to calculate the starting print position if you print from the label queue.

Macro 

12/6/2004 

Bedford Public Library System 

This macro inserts a 949 field for ON ORDER records. The inserted field will look something like this when the F4 key is hit: #a#cONORDER#gsys00007210#p#s12/04#thc#v05097a Subfield C has ONORDER in it. Subfield G pulls the control number down and inserts it as a fake barcode. Subfield S is the date and subfield V is the purchase order number. Catalogers edit and load the macro (which is very easy) prior to working on a purchase order of new records. 

TLC Notes: 1. Loading this macro will not automatically activate F4 or any other function key. Each user must assign each macro to the function key combination of their choice. 2. Subfield usage may vary for your library. Be sure to compare the field and subfield assignments in this macro to those that your library established when your Library.Solution system was installed. 3. This macro requires the Use Holdings Field Editor option to be unchecked.

This macro creates a 959 field and copies the 005 datestamp information into it, which could be useful to record the time and date of a record's first save. Note that the 005 field is not updated until a record is saved. Copy cataloging records bear the 005 datestamp of the cataloging agency.  

Note to Library.Solution users: this information is stored separately in the database, so this macro may be regarded as redundant.
