“We are using a lot of features. Besides the Visual Navigator [Explore], we post bestsellers, new books, and recommendations. You can access them right from the Welcome screen of Safari. I love using Safari Selections, which shows book jackets. We use Surpass Copycat to catalog, and we also use custom reporting.”

“Volunteers were able to use Surpass Copycat to catalog our library with minimum training,” Marie praised. “Those with no library experience were able to use Copycat easily and independently.” “Surpass is great,” Marie concludes. “It’s easy to use, it’s affordable, and it does everything we need it to do.”
