I'm just about ready to start cataloging our church library (7000 books).
Currently I have V1.2.3 running, but before I'll get stuck into it, I
thought of asking some questions (I'm a real beginner when it comes to Linux
and the library stuff).

1. How easy will it be to upgrade from V1.2.3 to V2.0. I guess what I'm
trying to ask is whether databases will be compatible. I will NOT ask when
V2.0 is going to be out :-)
2. What is the recommended book bar code numbering scheme and what is the
formula to generate the sequnce.
3. If the Library of Congress search fails what is the next best source of
MARC records (I'm based in NZ)
4. Has anyone been through importing MUSAC (DOS version) database into Koha.

After my very brief 'fiddle' with Koha I was wondering if there were plans
to add a boolean expressions to the Z3950 search form.

Thanks for your answers and keep up the good work you are doing.
