41 Sirsi Workflows Updates The Sirsi upgrade to version was completed in June. To check whether the software has been updated, navigate to the Sirsi Help Menu  About and verify the build date (2013-04-15) and version number.

42 Sirsi Workflows Updates Reminder: Recommended Installation Type NCC recommends that libraries install Sirsi Workflows under each login to the computer. Details on the upgrade were sent via email on July 1 to all library staff. If assistance is needed, please open a Service Desk request or contact us via phone or email. Report file path missing? See:

50 Sirsi Workflows Enhancements Anyone using Sirsi overdue notices? If so, when emailing a scheduled report to patrons, the email subject line can now be customized. (The INFOhio CIR: Overdues and Notices report already had this functionality.)

For schools that may not be able to provide photos in the required format, library staff can now upload photos manually and edit/crop those as needed. This may also be useful for schools where photos have been mass uploaded, but where a handful need to be modified/added later. Tip Sheet available from the Sirsi Manual: http://
