    Question: I am wondering if it is possible to print labels for multi-volume items at one time, rather than individually. This would be, for instance, a set of books which have the same title but different volume numbers. How to print labels for multivolume items.

    I want to be able to easily print labels for multivolume sets. If there were a ready-made template that you could provide, it would be very useful. Also, I would appreciate a more specific set of instructions on how to create a filter properly for the uninitiated.

    Question: I downloaded your free trial yesterday and I am trying it out to see if it will work for our small school. I found where you can turn on the button for auto processing but I was wondering if there is a way to keep the auto processing turned on?

    Auto processing will be on all the time if you do not try to process transaction manually (if you decide to select item or borrower from the list, if you try to modify return date, or in some other situation the auto processing turns off to let you finish the check out transaction).

    Question: Can you use the isbn to check out books instead of using the number generated by the system? I'm trying to avoid having to relabel all library materials. If there is, please inform.

    We do not suggest using the book's ISBN value in the BARCODE data field. If the library has multiple copies of the same book, then there are duplicate ISBN values. The barcode number has to be unique for every item in the library.
