Re: holdings format Edwardo Gil 15 Mar 2004 16:18 UTC

HI All,
Is anyone using SIRSI's Serial Module WorkFlows?  We've had it since
last June 2003.  We have alot of problems with Textual Holdings.  Can
anyone give me some positive support?  My staff likes WorkFlows but we
don't like what comes out in the online catalog.
