Sutherland Shire Teacher Librarians Network-Term 3, 2014

Today as part of a day all about Library Technologies, I did a short presentation to this group about our Library Management System, Softlink's Oliver.
I wanted to put the public school teacher-librarians at ease about their coming change from OASIS to Oliver.  We've been using Oliver for a number of years now.  It seemed to work!
