Sierra / CountyCat Training



MCFLS is on Sierra 5.0 as of February 5, 2020.  Release notes and known issues documents from Innovative Interfaces are linked at the bottom of this page. There is also a brief presentation by another III library on the 5.0 features attached below.  Innovative has shared this two minute video for Sierra 5.0. ​MCFLS created a brief document to outline the Sierra 5.0 Release Features & Fixes

If you work in Circulation, please note that the MCFLS office will contact each library, one by one, to inquire about your DATE DUE slip default preference by login. With Sierra 5.0, your login still defaults to print but with the new release, MCFLS will be able to set the default to be either print, email or none. The option to change the method from patron to patron will also exist but the default is what it will revert to on startup.  

The image below shows a patron record in CountyCat with the new ACTION column. This comes with the release. It is intended to help patrons understand actions that will get updated on their holds.



Please consult the MCLFS Running list of Known Issues and Bugs.
