Thanks Roger.
As for synopses that process, while always a great need in the collection
and a perfect fit for volunteers, is only available to in-house
volunteers. The issue is that our catalog is linked to other databases and
there is no way to limit off-site access to only the synopsis function. A
solution to this has been in the request queue for quit some time. I will
be certain to let everyone know when it is possible to help with synopses
from a distance.
