Update on catalog automation

We're sending off our last batch of 5,000 cards to our conversion vendor today. You should see these records in our catalog by mid-June. We're continuing to work on adding the local copy information to the records we downloaded at the end of March. We'll be taking some time to review sections of our collections and shift books in the stacks before we send more cards out. We've removed numerous duplicate copies from the stacks and are selling them where possible. We listed a couple of items for sale on Amazon.com : 52 Story Sermons and Interpreter's Dictionary of the Bible in 5 volumes. We'll be listing more there as we go along.
