It would be neat to have a “download-friendly” format/option for the users’ or borrowers’ list. I call it my “bibliography.” Text/csv would probably be most universal – or rich text.
I agree with you: a printer- or download-friendly option for lists available through the MLN catalog’s My Account would be helpful. I have passed your suggestion on to the Minuteman Library Network’s central site staff, who work directly with our vendor, Innovative Interfaces.
I would like the library to have longer Internet use. I am a student and I don’t have a computer with a word processor on it. If the library were to offer a system of increased Internet use, I would be able to finish more work.
With such a high demand for public computer access, we are obliged to balance providing a turn for everyone who needs it with giving each user enough time.
As it is now, anyone can arrange to have over three hours of computer use each day. (You can call ahead to reserve the two-hour computers and ask any computer-related questions at the Reference Desk.) When it’s busy we do have to enforce the time limits strictly.
We expect to continue adding computers, which may take some of the time pressure off. In the meantime, you can get additional hours at the Charles River Public Internet Center, which offers free Internet access from 12-8 pm Monday through Thursday.
