Hello, Ann!

    In our latest exchange, on 3 June 2021 at 8:06 [JST], I received from

 Beginning Koha user – so haven’t approached the administrators.

    So are we. Only a little over two years.

    Thanks on both counts.

    When we first began using Koha, a lot of people steered us to MarcEdit
for cataloging, especially for editing records in batches or in bulk.
MarcEdit is great in that respect. I had seen Koha templates on the Tools
page, but I was too busy with other duties to do anything further.

    Thanks again.
