Tip for January 28, 2019

When you're in Circulation and you need to find a patron fast, use the Lookup command. No, not the Lookup button — that is useful, but the L command will help you find your patron and make them current in fewer steps. 

Patron Lookup

For example...

  1. In the command line, type L anderson <enter> to bring up a list of all patrons with the last name Anderson.
  2. From there you can tab to the list of results, and tap <enter> to open the first result or key through the results and press enter. Viola! Darla is current in Circulation.

That was 2 steps and no clicking. 

As a comparison, if you press Lookup, you have to:

  1. Press Lookup.
  2. Type "anderson".
  3. Select the name.
  4. Then press <enter>.

That's 4 steps with clicking. 

So pull up your patrons the fast way—use the Lookup command.
