You can purchase vouchers for any amount over £50 and they can be used for a range of services including: Heritage Training Days (on-site or in Oxford), Heritage Workshops, Web Training, On-site Technical Visits, Remote System Configuration/Upgrades.
Vouchers can be purchased at any time. We will issue you with a training voucher for the correct amount and put a credit on your customer account with us. Vouchers should be used within 12 months of purchase. If you sometimes need to spend money quickly at year-end then training vouchers would be an ideal solution.
A new and exciting OPAC interface for Heritage is now available.
Clean, elegantly designed and highly functional, it offers a host of new features which have been well-received by users, including book, CD and DVD covers, Google previews, reviews and star ratings, reading lists, saved searches and library news. The OPAC can be customised easily to the user's requirements including text size, search precision and default display formats.
Brand-new for version 4.2.9, this module records circulation transactions when the main Heritage system is inaccessible- due to network problems, server upgrading, system maintenance etc. If your network is prone to this kind of down-time then we highly recommend it. The module will upload the the offline circulation transactions for you when the system is back online again. Unlike many other library management systems, there is no requirement to load the off-line data before circulation resumes (although it is advisable to do it soon afterwards).
