I have recently downloaded the program and have been reviewing it for implementation in an academic department library and am very impressed with the features and functionality. There is, however, one feature that I wish could be modified to be more user friendly. The cataloging feature requires both knowledge of MARC tags and the inclusion of additional characters to function properly.
Is there a way the program can be easily modified to display the Tag descriptions on the Cataloging screen in place of or in addition to the Tag number?
I realize the help button exists to offer descriptions, but that does not seem to provide any information when entering a new record - it is there when editing existing records, but still requires additional work.
Is it also possible to modify the program to add the additional tags without input by the user? For example - instead of entering "1 $aParker, Emma." a user would simply enter "Parker, Emma." in Tag 100.
I think these two modifications to the cataloging feature would be an excellent addition to the software and allow easier usage for those who are more computer illiterate.
