With the Covid-19 restrictions that have been in place around the country, schools have seen various delays this year in updating their Readership records for students moving up in years, and the new intake records. This can also be a confusing time, as this is typically something that librarians do only once a year and never look at the BISON functions again for another 12 months!
Remember that we are there to help - we can perform the updates for you.
- If you are a desktop user, just send us your data files in an encrypted package and we will send the updated database back to you by return - you may even want to do this at the end of a day, so that the email is waiting for you when you get in the next day.
- If you are a Mystic user, just upload your data files into the BISON facility within Mystic, then drop us a line. We will logon and do the update for you immediately.
Remember that when you ask for your update files, try to get the reader's first and last name, any school admission number, their data of birth and of course their new class - while we can often match readers on name, this is by nature not a unique field! With the DoB and admission number, we can ensure that the reader's match perfectly!
