Well, im a kid that is interested in computers (Open source
especially), and want to try and get my school library using
Evergreen. I would be interested to know weather it would be the best
choice for a small library like this. (~450 patrons). and how people
would be able to print barcodes, and how you can assign a book a new
barcode, when it gets worn out. Also would it be possible to not have
to re enter all the data about how many of each book they have.(im not
a big fan of data entry)
