Actually, we were running Winnebago Circ/Cat, an old DOS-based program 
that our libraries had been running since 1991 or 92.  We tried 
migrating to Spectrum at one point but couldn't get it to work for us.  
I used the export applications that came with it, however, to get all of 
our data out except for the patron list (which I did by running a 
report) and the material records, which I exported though Circ/Cat's 
export utility.  I then used MarcEdit to do most of the processing of 
the materials.
