Wow, thank you for the quick replies everyone! I should have asked this
list long ago.

If only we had a barcode scanner. =) We are very low-tech here. So I am
just hoping to get a list to print where I can check off items.

Thank you! I will try something like your solution.

Oh thank goodness you knew this. It was driving me crazy. Well, we clearly
needed to upgrade anyhow. Thanks for the links to backing up and upgrading.
We pretty much have not used the system at all and don't really need the
history, so I will probably just install the newest version, as Bob

Haha, yeah, I think my predecessors did not think to check on upgrades. But
I had no idea we were that far behind!

Hm, it is on a Mac and was migrated from another Mac where presumably it
was installed. In the About module where I found the number it actually
said something about Linux. Maybe the Linux/Mac versions of super-old KOHA
were the same?
