Yes, we all still use a mouse, though now I realize that of course we 
can just hit the F1 key when we're done - kinda a hand to the forehead 
moment there!

Thanks for that! We don't generally give receipts (still use date due 
cards - small library), but it's good to know that when someone asks for 
one, there's a quick keyboard shortcut.

I really like this listserv - though most of it is way over my head 
technically, I've picked up some good tips and it's cool to read about 
the programming details involved. Now if only some of our patrons would 
embrace Evergreen with the same enthusiasm!
