On May 1, 2025 we got together and talked magazines on cartridge (MoC)! We shared the current status and coming improvements, answered questions, and did our best to start you out on the right foot. As usual, this session was recorded for those who can't join us live.

  • What: Issuing Magazines on Cartridge (MoC) Webinar
  • Presenter: Katy Patrick,Technical Writer, Keystone Systems
During this webinar we maxed out the 100 attendee limit on Zoom for the first time, so we tried upping our max to 500 as it was ongoing, which required us to stop and restart the webinar in our attempt. We recommend watching Part 2 first which has the vast majority of the information presented. Part 1 is the first 15 minutes prior to restarting.

Query to find BARD Only Patrons with Active Subscriptions

Here's the query Erin, AZ, requested during the webinar to find BARD Only patrons with active subscriptions:

Quick Search-

  • Main Status | Equals | a

Advanced Search-

  • Media | Pat Medium | Equals | db
  • Media | ServeCode | Equals | bard [or "ob" or whatever code is used for "BARD only" patrons]
  • Subscription | KLAS ID | [see below]
  • Subscription | End Date | Is Blank

For the subscription IDs, either use "In" and a comma-separated list of all MoC Serials
OR
use "Not In" and a list of the most common non-MoC serials, ex: SER-TBT2,SER-TBT4,SER-TBN2,SER-TBN9,SER-DDB9,SER-NWL8,SER-CAW1,SER-CAP1,SER-VET9,SER-CAL2

This query is not perfect, but it should give you a reasonable list of BARD-only patrons with active subscriptions (which may or may not be MoC serials) for you to review.

Bear in mind that these patrons have been receiving MoC Direct serials despite their BARD Only status, and may want to continue receiving them.

Join us at 3 PM ET for a KLAS LBPD Users' Roundtable to explore how libraries for the blind and print disabled use volunteers and how KLAS can manage, support, and track their contributions to your library and patrons!

Volunteers makeup an important part of the Library for the Blind & Print Disabled (LBPD) / Talking Book Library community and contribute greatly to their success. Each library utilizes volunteers uniquely; from shelving and circulation to readers advisory to recording content. Join the KLAS program committee for a presentation from a few of our outstanding network libraries discussing how they train and deploy their volunteers, and how they use KLAS to support and manage them.

This free, online session was held via Zoom on January 11th at 3 PM Eastern / Noon Pacific.
