Innovative Interfaces Incorporated - Millennium

Our library is switching to a One Library One Province mode. One of the first things we are doing is switching from dying DRA to Millennium by III. I have used this at BCIT, Burnay and am looking foward to working on it again. It is more intuitive and user-friendly.

We are the first library to go live with this and then the rest of the province will follow. Staff are understandably a bit stressed with the change, scheduling and the unknown, when it goes live on December 15th.

Did you know that computer systems upgrade is one of the top causes of stress at a workplace? No wonder......

I think most of the fear stems from the fact that patrons will not be patient while we learn this system on the job - they will yell, stomp, throw tantrums.... But wait, we have all this already, don't we? Good luck to us!
