QUESTION:

We are in the process of weeding MANY nonfiction books at our school. Is there a way to print a list of titles that have a “weeded” shelf location for a specific date range (we would also need to capture the ISBN number as well). We are trying to alleviate having to manually key all of these items on a materials discard list once we remove them from Workflows.

ANSWER:

To get this kind of data, you will want to run the CAT: Shelf List report under the INFOhio tab. Here is how you will want to set up the report: • Under the Item Selection tab you will enter XXXX (your library code) in the Library field • You will need to populate both the Shelf location and Current status field with WEEDED • In the Date modified field, you will choose Range on the popup and select the dates that you were weeding materials • Under the Output Option tab, you will select the report type to be Spreadsheet (it defaults to Brief) • Further down the screen, you will see four check boxes under the heading Bibliographic Field Selections, and it is here that you can check ISBN to have it included in your results • Click Run Now

Can a phone get hacked?

ANSWER:

Yes. While some platforms are harder than others to get root access to, it can and does happen. The best thing to do is to only download apps from trusted sources you know of. Downloading that latest game or flashlight app that is new and looks flashy may not be the safest thing to do.

QUESTION:

Should I really have different passwords for every website I login to?

ANSWER:

Yes. Though it can be challenging, using one or two passwords for each site is not safe. As soon as a service is breached, the bad actors now have your email address and password. They will try common services with the set of credentials they have stolen. If you have a different password for every site it makes it more difficult for a bad actor to steal everything from you. A few recommendations for password managers include: 1Password, LastPass, DashLane, RoboForm, and KeePass

TECHNOLOGY:

QUESTION:

Every day I have to download data from our SIS, manipulate it, and then send it out to various staff members. I have to spend time each day doing this and it really adds up. Is there a better way?

ANSWER:

In most cases, yes! We can work with you to help automate the process and in many cases require no interaction from the district at all. The files are just sent to the various staff members every day on schedule.
