OpenRS Training Videos

The second OpenRS training video highlighting resource sharing between the University of Missouri (FOLIO) and St. Louis County Library (Polaris) is now available. That video can be found here (on Dropbox) and here (Vimeo). For the Vimeo link you will need to use the "MOBIUS password" that we use for just about everything. If you need help, please reach out to the Help Desk.

The first training video for the standalone libraries (those remaining on Sierra and Polaris) is now available. As this rolls out, we'll connect all of the Polaris and Sierra standalone libraries and then work with FOLIO.  So, if you are a standalone library (or, even if you're not), you can checkout the video featuring our friends at West Des Moines Public Library (Sierra) and St. Louis County Library (Polaris).
