We recently upgraded to Polaris 7.0. 

There are many great features in the Polaris 7.0 upgrade, with many geared toward Leap. One long-awaited feature is the ability to import and edit bibliographic records, which includes the use of newly created cataloging shortcut keys. Another great feature is the ability to place multiple patrons on hold for one title in Leap. This is a great feature for library front-line staff to place holds for book club members.

If you would like an overview of the new features, please view this presentation

If you have any questions, please contact Dena Porter.  


For anyone who has not yet tried Leap, or needs a refresher, here's a training session!

 For barcoding libraries, SHARE recommends making the switch to Leap.

 Why choose Leap? Leap is EASY to use! It also has several technical benefits. First, it uses less of your library’s bandwidth, so you may notice it running quicker than the original staff client. Second, it uses less   resources for SHARE servers. Lastly, Polaris views Leap as their next-generation product. You will start to see more features in Leap than in the staff client.
